A two-day exhibition begins today in Dhaka to showcase a variety of Indian textile products used in the apparel sector in Bangladesh.

The event is being organised by the Synthetic and Rayon Textiles Export Promotion Council of India in association with the High Commission of India in Dhaka, Sanjeev Saran, convener of Export Promotion Committee, said at a press conference at Sonargaon Hotel in Dhaka yesterday.

“We are here in Bangladesh as collaborators, not competitors. Bangladesh has a very vibrant garment sector. India is also a big destination for backward integration for the Bangladeshi garment sector,” said Saran.

A wide range of textile products such as polyester spun yarn, viscose yarn, suiting clothes, ladies’ dress fabrics and home textile fabrics are being displayed by 22 Indian companies at the seventh edition of the exhibition.

The exhibition will remain open for all from 10am to 7pm at the Ball Room of Sonargaon Hotel.

In the past five years, the export of synthetic and blended textiles from India to Bangladesh rose from $124 million in 2009-10 to $237 million now, he said.
