In recent years, as wages boomed in traditional manufacturing hubs like China, more and more production has shifted to frontier markets such as Vietnam and Bangladesh. Bangladesh has become a major beneficiary of a global search for cheaper clothes. The textile industry now makes up more than 80% of its total exports. By 2002 exports of textiles, clothing, and ready-made garments (RMG) accounted for 77% of Bangladesh’s total merchandise exports. By 2013, about 4 million people, mostly women, worked in Bangladesh's $19 billion-a-year industry, export-oriented ready-made garment (RMG) industry. Now Bangladesh is second only to China, the world's second-largest apparel exporter of western brands.
While it employs millions, the industry has come under intense pressure from overworking conditions and wages. It came as a shock in 2012 when Tazreen was fired, and in 2013 when the Rana Plaza factory collapsed in Bangladesh. With it, emerged some urgent issues, such as resonable sourcing and production practices; corporate social responsibility (CSR); sustainability problems including supply chain, environment, resources,etc.
The conference aims at deeply analyzing the Bangladesh textile industry in order to help you better understand its textile market and avoid the risks and find opportunities.It's a great platform for international buyers to learn the latest sourcing strategies and trends in Bangladesh textile industry,and for suppliers it is a way to find the solution to the problems they met in investing factories. Meanwhile, it is also an opportunity for exchanges, communication and mutual assistance.
