Indian apparel manufactures have expressed worry over the duty free import trade of readymade garments from Bangladesh. Under the South Asian Free Trade Area (SAFTA) agreement, Bangladesh was allowed to export more than 60 products including RMG to India without any duty. The Bangladesh’s share in international RMG market is next only to China. The value of RMG imports from Bangladesh was $104.25 mn in 2014-15. It touched $499.09 mn in 2018-19. Though Bangladesh earlier did not take advantage of SAFTA agreement, its RMG exports to India grew up to 480 percent in the last five years.
