There was a surge of 11 per cent foreign direct investment (FDI) in the fiscal year 2016 (FY16) in Bangladesh textile and clothing sector, according to the central bank of Bangladesh. Net inflow of FDI into textile sector for FY16 was $396 million against $351.62 million in FY15. However, this is less than the record FDI inflow of $445.82 million in FY14.

Of the total foreign investment in textile and clothing in FY16, around $222.86 million was introduced as reinvested earnings of the current companies operating in Bangladesh.

South Korean firms, mostly in the export processing zones, invested $111.61 million. This is almost one-third of the FDI in textile sector. Hong Kong firms invested $89.07 million.
