How is RMG sector in Bangladesh performing presently? What all bottlenecks your line players suffer in course of good growth?
At present Bangladesh is the hub of garments sector across
the world, because China shifted its textile and clothing industry to other
higher technology, India also followed same, Pakistan and Srilanka did not
perform good due to the their internal militant crises, so buyer has no option than
coming to Bangladesh.
On the other side, from last 3 decades Bangladesh
garments sector archived larger scale quality, skilled manpower and professionalism.
In a word we can say over the last 3 decades Bangladesh made itself as big tree
in the garments sector over the globe.
As bottlenecks, our kind of players are suffering mainly shortage of worker, some times worker unrest, infrastructure issues like power shortage, gas shortage, etc. We are also suffering from low pricing of the goods. The price that we get from buyers does not give return on all our cost of production including minimum wages as recently, worker, leaders, Government and BGMEA have placed minimum wages scale to high range.
We are also facing high duty in USA port; we need duty free access to USA market, because more than 50% goods are going to USA market.
