In order to expand in the international market and raise annual export to US $15 to 18 billion within next three years, Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) recently unveiled a set of guidelines to make garments factories fully aware of international regulations and standards.
The three-year guidelines designed by UK based Multi-stakeholder Forum (MFB) is an attempt to make the sector competent as well as highly productive.
Center for Promotion of Imports (CBI), a Dutch organization, will assist BGMEA to enter the European markets.
BGMEA President Anwar-Ul-Alam Chowdhury Parvez, in a press conference said the reporters, "We'll get better prices of products upon implementation of the roadmap", while explaining the possible outcome of the plan.
With an intention to capture the European market, a two-day workshop was organized by BGMEA which ended on May 9. Here representatives from 20 garment factories discussed ways and means to attract attention of foreign buyers and explore new markets in Europe.
BGMEA is planning to send 15 persons to a six-day fair in Netherlands and Germany which is going to be held from July 22 to July 27. Around 800 buyers including 250 from European countries are supposed to attend the fair.
