BATEXPO aims to woo foreign buyers

06
Nov '08
Driving away the fear of any adverse impact of the global economic crisis on garment exports, the BGMEA chief yesterday unveiled schedules for the country's biggest apparel exposition, BATEXPO-2008.

The three-day Bangladesh Apparel and Textile Exposition (BATEXPO) must woo foreign buyers to buy apparel products, said Anwar-Ul-Alam Chowdhury Parvez, president of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), at a press conference in Dhaka.

Chief Adviser Fakhruddin Ahmed will inaugurate the exposition at Sonargaon Hotel today with other caretaker government advisers attending the event as special guests.

Chowdhury said Bangladeshi garment exporters should not worry about the global financial crisis, as orders for garment products did not fall this year.

"The orders may be shifted from one month to another but the international buyers are not shifting their orders from Bangladesh to other countries," Chowdhury said.

Chowdhury called on the banks and other financial institutions to come forward with courage to maintain normal flow of fund in the sector in such a tough time.

Referring to the statistics of the Export Promotion Bureau (EPB), Chowdhury said in 2007-08 Bangladesh exported garment items worth $10.7 billion.

On the sidelines of the exposition, BGMEA will hold seminars on the impact of global financial turmoil on RMG and changing focus on garment trade.
