With the rising demand for Bangladesh apparel in Slovenia, government is keen to import RMG from Bangladesh, said Tanja Strnisa, visiting Slovenian deputy minister of agriculture, forestry and food, who was in Dhaka on a three-day visit. Bangladesh commerce minister Tofail Ahmed assured the visiting dignitary of all assistance for the same.

Bangladesh will take necessary steps to increase its apparel exports to Slovenia, said Ahmed in a meeting with Strnisa at his secretariat office in Dhaka. “Bilateral trade between both the countries is $54.37 billion, which can be increased manifolds. The government will take all the necessary steps to increase export to the country,” said Ahmed.  

Strnisa said that there is an increasing demand for Bangladesh readymade garments as the quality of their apparel is good. She assured Ahmed that Bangladesh can also use their ports for exports to other member countries of the EU. At present, under Generalised System of Preferences, Bangladesh has duty free access to Slovenia as it is a member of the EU.

A large part of export is done to the EU market, said Ahmed, adding that there is a need for exchange of business delegation between both the countries.

In the last fiscal year, of the $39.17 million exports to Slovenia, $34.60 million came from the clothing sector, according to Bangladesh's Export Promotion Bureau. (RR)
