A four-day exposition starts in Dhaka today to showcase textile and garment machinery.
Jahangir Alamin, president of Bangladesh Textile Mills Association, said at a press conference yesterday that the association has been organising the annual event, Dhaka International Textiles and Garments Machinery Exhibition, for the last eight years.
“Such an event is a reflection of how Bangladesh’s garment makers are progressing. We are the third largest supplier of garment products, followed by China and Turkey, and we have a chance to claim the second spot in future if the potential could be properly tapped.”
“The government should create an investment-friendly environment and build infrastructures to run business smoothly,” Alamin added.
He said machinery used in textile and garment, dyeing and finishing, embroidery and knitting would be put on display at the fair.
A total of 620 leading textile and garment machinery producing companies from 31 countries are likely to exhibit their products.
Textiles and Jute Minister Abdul Latif Siddiqui is expected to inaugurate the fair at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre.
Leading companies from Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Brazil, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, UK and USA is participating in the exhibition.
