As Bangladesh garment industry continues with its inspiring growth journey and is inching towards its mission to achieve US $ 50 billion by 2021, the medium-sized exporters are not very upbeat, facing multiple challenges like shortage of power, gas and other infrastructural bottlenecks! Team AOB caught up with a few exporters with an estimated export turnover of US $ 10-20 million to get a lowdown on the hurdles and odds facing them… Meanwhile, it is also the right time for small exporters to expand in the country, known for taking only bulk orders. The acceptance of small orders have taken a fresh turn as Government apathy and the recent terror attacks have adversely impacted the industry, putting the medium-level exporters on a back-foot, stalling expansion plans, while the bigger ones are moving faster towards small orders to fill capacities. In conversation with AOB, few small buying offices share their journey to work in small quantities. Also covered in detail is a preview of Denimsandjeans.com Bangladesh show to be held on 5-6 October 2016 at Hotel Radisson with the theme – ‘VINTAGE RECALL – Denim Goes Back To Its Roots’. Team AOB is already in Bangladesh to cover the event live! Besides the above, current and retail news, technology and fashion trend pages make the magazine worth readable.
