Apparel exports to Canada rise


The country’s readymade garment exports to Canada grew by more than 30 per cent, year-on-year, in the first quarter of 2009, thanks to flexible duty-free access for the Bangladeshi goods to the north American country.
   Quoting the latest Canadian official data, a Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Expor-ters Association official
   told New Age that apparel shipments from Bangla-desh to Canada was $160.4 million in January-March 2009.
   After EU and US, Canada is the major market for Bangladeshi garment exporters.
   The BGMEA official said Canada imported around $8 billion apparel in 2008 from different countries including Bangladesh, but the demand declined due to less consumer spending.
   He, however, said more price-cautious Canadian importers came to Bangladeshi suppliers for cheaper consignments.

  2. Bangladesh is making more profit from garment factory. They are covering the maximum market by providing quality apparel. As the labour rate is very low in Bangladesh a company can easily increase there profit by establishing garments factory in Bangladesh.
