Global economic meltdown cast its shadow on spot orders at the 20th Batexpo conducted recently from November 5-7, said Mr. Abdus Salam Murshedy, President BGMEA in a press conference held in the office of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association.

This year at Batexpo, the exhibitors received $41.64 million in spot orders from international buyers compared to $55.45 million they had generated last year.
