Message From BGMEA President

Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) is a pioneering and leading trade association in Bangladesh that has brought garment manufacturers and exporters on a common platform with an aim to ensure a congenial business climate for sustainable growth in the apparel industry. Since its inception, BGMEA has been working relentlessly to promote and protect the interests of the apparel industry that has brought about revolutionary socio-economic changes in Bangladesh by generating employment, empowering women and alleviating poverty. 

Over the years readymade garment (RMG) industry has witnessed a steady growth and within three decades it has become the largest export earning sector of Bangladesh, generating 80 percent of the export earnings and contributing more than 10 percent to national GDP. The RMG sector has created employment for about 4.4 million people, of whom 80 percent are women. Apart from playing a vital role in Bangladesh’s economic growth, the RMG sector has bolstered the country’s image worldwide. The ‘made-in-Bangladesh’ tag has taken Bangladesh to a new height at the international level.

However, the apparel industry in Bangladesh has not come to this stage easily and overnight. The sector had to face and is still facing various challenges. BGMEA has been playing a significant role in the sector’s march towards progress and will continue its efforts to ensure a safer and sustainable garment industry in Bangladesh.

Please keep your eyes on the BGMEA website and feel free to extend your support to us to keep our march towards progress steady and sustainable.
