imagesA two-day “Bangladesh Denim Expo” is scheduled to be held in Dhaka on November 11-12, this year to promote Bangladesh brands to the global market and share knowledge with the international producers to get acquinted with the latest technologies.

Denim Expert Limited, a domestic denim producer, will organise the international Denim Trade Show in Bangladesh to popularise the brand in international denim industry.

The Expo will be held at Hotel Radisson Blue Water Garden in the capital on November 11 -12.

Our primary purpose is to create a platform for Denim stakeholders and to make Bangladesh as ‘One Stop Sourcing Platform’ for denim industry, which could bring benefits to the entrepreneurs, said chief initiator of the expo and Managing Director of the organisation Mostafiz Uddin while addressing a press conference at a city hotel yesterday.

“We expect that Denim goods from Bangladesh will yield greater brand value in the global market through this initiative,’’ said Mostafiz, who termed the initiative as a not-profitable one.

A total of 11 foreign participants took part in the last Denim Expo while the organisers are expecting more turnout of apparel entrepreneurs, businessmen, fashion professionals and stakeholders of the industry from Europe, US, UK and several Asian countries in the expo this year.

Currently, Bangladesh produces low and mid end products and to reach the high end products, we have to know about the global trend and the latest technologies, said Engr MS Hasan, Director, PARTEX group.

“Our aim is to bring foreign experts here and to enrich our industry by exchanging our experiences among ourselves,’’ he added.

According to the industry insiders, Bangladesh is the second largest denim exporter in European markets while it is holding the third largest position in the USA market.

Bangladesh exports denims’ products worth around US$600m per annum to the global market.

Currently, the industry has 25 Denim fabric manufacturers, which produce around 20m yards per month to meet 40% of the total demand. The country, however, needs to import 60% fabric.

The press conference was also addressed, among others, by Kamal Uddin, Managing Director of Raymotex Corporation and Shohel Rana, Director, Nassa Group.
