Japan top destination for Bangladeshi garments in Asia
Bangladesh is the second largest garments exporter, with Japan being the top destination for garments in Asia, Bangladesh ambassador to Japan Rabab Fatima said at a seminar in Tokyo. Bangladesh is the third largest garments exporter to Japan in value and volume, with 5.9 per cent of the volume and 3.9 per cent of the value of Japanese imports, she said.

During January-August 2018, the 128.2 per cent growth in garment exports was the highest among all exporting nations, she said. Knitwear is at present the top export item to Japan, Bangladesh media reports quoted Fatima as saying.

The seminar was organised by the embassy of Bangladesh in collaboration with the ministry of commerce and export promotion bureau of Bangladesh, and was supported by Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), Japan-Bangladesh Committee for Commercial and Economic Co-operation (JBCCCEC),the Japan and Tokyo Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI & TCCI) and Japan Textile Importers Association (JTIA).
