The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) is focusing on developing high-value fashionable garments using locally produced heritage fabrics and linking them to the export market, said its President Faruque Hassan. He also said that it will create opportunities for the sector with respect to diversification. “We now have local design studios. Among the 160 people who took the training are local handlooms and one of the biggest takeaways from this training is networking,” he added.
