British cooperation sought to remain competitive in UK: BGMEA
Local garment makers today sought cooperation from Britain to maintain competitiveness for apparel shipment to the UK markets after Bangladesh's graduation to a developing nation in 2026.
Faruque Hassan, president of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), made the call in a meeting with Robert Chatterton Dickson, British high commissioner to Bangladesh, at the BGMEA office in Dhaka.
They discussed various trade related issues, including the present situation in the UK market, possible ways to increase apparel export to the kingdom, challenges of the industry and the areas where the sector is focusing on to remain competitive in the long run, BGMEA said in a statement.
Other BGMEA leaders were also present at the meeting.
