The last thing that Bangladesh needs is for its primary export industry to fall into complacency
Bangladesh’s RMG industry has long established our ready-made garments as the primary export product of Bangladesh, amounting to 83% of our total exports, a proportion that does not look to be reducing any time soon.
As such, it is imperative that the industry take whatever steps necessary to ensure that it continues to function in the best way possible.
In a recent webinar, which discussed the findings of a study conducted by the Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) and Institute of Policy Studies, Sri Lanka (IPS), experts opined that value-chain-based solutions that integrate all variables of the supply chain process -- suppliers, manufacturers, buyers, brands, as well as governments of sourcing countries -- can help take the Bangladesh RMG industry to the next level. We need to be paying attention to these factors.
