Why do still Bangladeshi apparel factories need to import accessories
Textile Today question of the month
Question: Why do still factories import accessories when we can meet 90% of demand? Is it a trust problem or buyer nominate foreign companies?
Moazzem Hossain Moti, President, BGAPMEA
Actually we have the capacity and we are producing 100% of the accessories and packaging products needed for the Bangladesh apparel industry. But the RMG makers’ imports 10% accessories and packaging products due to buyers nominated foreign companies. Mainly the fancy items.

I think if the garments factories give support, buyers also will get confidence. And usually, merchandisers procure the accessories. They should select the right companies from our country those who have all the certifications and maintain quality.
