BGMEA emphasises shift towards high-end apparels


Economic Reporter :
As Bangladesh’s ready-made garment (RMG) industry continues to strive towards achieving the ambitious target of $100 billion from garment exports by 2030, a significant shift towards value-added, high-end apparel items is underway in the sector.

To move up the value chain, apparel exporters in Bangladesh are increasingly focusing on product diversification, with a particular emphasis on complex and high-end non-cotton garments such as jacket, lingerie, sportswear, suit, uniform, technical apparels.


The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), the apex trade body representing the apparel sector, is spearheading initiatives to facilitate this transition towards high-value items, read a press release issued Monday.

BGMEA President Faruque Hassan made visits to several garment factories in Adamjee EPZ in Narayanganj to see the production of high-end apparel items.
