The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers Association (BGMEA) stressed increased business interactions between the ready-made garment and textile exporters of Bangladesh and India.

The BGMEA President Faruque Hassan came up with the remark as Rahul Mehta, chief mentor of Clothing Manufacturers Association of India (CMAI), paid a courtesy visit to him at his office in Dhaka on Sunday, according to a press statement. 

Hassan said Bangladesh and India can open up windows of trade opportunities and could also collaborate in terms of exchange of knowledge and expertise on innovation, product development, especially man-made fibre based products as Bangladesh is increasingly focusing on the areas.

They discussed various issues related to the RMG industry, especially potential avenues of collaboration between Bangladesh and India to complement each other for the development of the apparel industry in both countries.

On behalf of CMAI, Rahul Mehta invited BGMEA members to participate in the upcoming ‘Fabrics Accessories and Beyond - The CMAI Fab Show’ to be held in Mumbai, India from September 19-21.

Hassan expressed hope that the trade show would bring manufacturers and exporters of both countries closer, paving the way to derive mutual trade benefits.

Bangladeshi exporters will be able to showcase the potential and strengths of the RMG industry among the participants of the trade fair, the BGMEA president added. 

BGMEA Vice President Shahidullah Azim, Chair of BGMEA Standing Committee on Trade Fair Mohammed Kamal Uddin and CMAI General Secretary and Chairman of Sub-Committee of CMAI Fab Show Naveen Sainani were present on the occasion.
