The Bangladesh Government officials and textile industry stakeholders see a huge potential for synergies between the two countries Bangladesh and India. Bangladesh is among the world’s second largest exporters of apparels, and India is the second largest producer of man-made fibre and textiles fabrics.

According to Gopal Bhattacharyya, additional Secretary of Bangladesh’s Textile Ministry, there is a lot of scope for synergies between India and Bangladesh and huge potential to expand the relationship in textile sector. Bangladesh is keen to collaborate with India on various fronts such as creating supply chain, technology and textile education.

Syed Mohammed Tanvir, Director, Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), a leading trade body in the neighbouring country said that India and Bangladesh should work together for creating supply chain. Bangladesh can source raw material (cotton and man-made fibre), yarn and textile from India and convert them into fashion apparels.
