According to BS Agarwal, President, SGCCI, Bangladesh is the top manufacturer of readymade garments and garment industry uses around 90 per cent cotton. There is huge potential for Surat fabrics, including saris and dress materials. FBCCI office-bearers have invited Surti weavers and textile processors to set up their units in Dhaka and Chittagong. Fabric samples will be sent to the SGCCI office at Dhaka and circulated to all garmenting units there and after the registers its fabric orders will start flowing. The annual export of readymade garments to Europe and the US from Bangladesh is pegged at $28 billion. Most cotton fabric is sourced by garment manufacturers in Bangladesh from India and China.
