WISHING ALL OUR READERS AND PATRONS A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
This is our special annual issue – 2018: A PERSPECTIVE – cherished by many as a ‘collector’s edition’. While the industry looks forward to this issue as a reference point, Team AO feels proud to see the amount of industry interaction they had in the year gone by! Hope you will find the issue interesting and share suggestions to improve upon it.
Cover Story in AOB is one of the most sought-after by our valued readers. In this retrospective issue, we present some selected stories, dealing with three very important issues – Emerging Markets, Branding and the so-called Competition between Bangladesh and Vietnam – with views and perspectives from stakeholders/experts/industry insiders, underlining the implications of these three issues marching into 2019.
‘Business Blueprint – 2018’ presents the undaunted challenges taken up by many business houses who were maintaining their winning strategies. Supporting the industry to overcome challenges were some popular technology suppliers, solution providers and accessory makers, covered in-depth through the year gone by. Sustainability, which had been the essence of 2018 in Bangladesh, has been given due prominence.
