A major three-day Bangladeshi trade show, 'Made in Bangladesh' will be held in New York in August, promoting a broad range of Bangladeshi products, the show's organisers said yesterday.
The show is being jointly arranged by First Multipurpose Services (FMS), a US based company and Mattra, a local communication agency. It will run from the 15th 17th August and it is expected that a total of 109 stalls will exhibit Bangladeshi products.
“This will be a full-fledged Bangladeshi trade exposition in the USA, arranged by the single largest importer of Bangladeshi products,” said Anisur Rahman Mahmud, CEO of Mattra, while addressing a press meeting to announce the show. “This show will create opportunities to explore newer avenues for promoting Bangladeshi products into the US market,” he added.
The product and services categories will be varied, ranging from RMG products, home textile items, ceramic tiles tableware, melamine and plastic product, handicrafts, furniture, leather, jute goods to recycled glass items.
The CEO of Mattra also informed that the exposition would arrange several seminars on topics that would improve the trade relation between Bangladesh and the USA, such as housing and real estate.
