The newly appointed US ambas sador for Bangladesh met with warm surprise with members of the Bangladesh apparel exporters evincing keen interest in setting up spinning mills in the United States and using US cotton for manufacture of yarns. The exporters sought a duty free access to the market in exchange. The exporters were a part of the Bangladesh Garment Exporters Association (BGMEA). Following the meeting with the US ambassador Earl Robert Miller, BGMEA President Md Siddiqur Rehman told, “Some of our entrepreneurs are interested to set up spinning mills in the US and they want to know whether they would get any duty benefit from the US in exporting RMG made by yarns produced in the mills.”
