Product diversity key to boost textile export, says Hasina

Dhaka – Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has called upon the entrepreneurs to produce diversified textile products to keep pace with the competition in the global markets.

She made the call inaugurating the National Textile Day 2019 and Multipurpose Textile Fair at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in Dhaka on Thursday.

“We have to add value to the existing products and explore new markets to raise the country’s export income,” Hasina said asking the public and private sectors to work together to increase the demand of Bangladeshi products in the overseas markets.

Bangladesh holds the second position in textile export in the world, the reality is that it has only 6.40% share in the world market, she said.

“We have to formulate short, medium and long term plans creating more demands in the world market,” she said.

Ministry of Textiles and Jute arranged the programme with the theme of the day is “Globalisation of the Textiles Sector-Sustainable Development”.

Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi, State Minister for Labour and Employment Monnujan Sufian, Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Textiles and Jute Ministry Mirza Azam and Secretary of the ministry Lokman Hossain Mian spoke among others.

The prime minister handed over awards to nine organisations and business enterprises for their contributions to the development of the textile sector.
