More than a dozen Bangladeshi textile, garment and leather companies took part in the three-day trade show Texworld Paris held from July 04 to July 06 in the French capital. This was the summer edition of the expo.
Bangladeshi companies participated in the expo ‘The Texworld/Apparel Sourcing/Leatherworld Paris’ through the Export Promotion Bureau (EPB) under the Ministry of Commerce.
Dilara Begum, Commercial Counsellor of Bangladesh in Paris, visited the summer edition of the expo that marked the return of major sourcing countries to the capital of fashion amid the pandemic, said a statement.
More than 400 exhibitors from some 20 countries, including Bangladesh, China, Korea, India, Taiwan, Turkey and Pakistan displayed a global fashion range in the expo. This scenario is signaling the recovery of the global textile and clothing market.
In the expo manufacturers exhibited various products on cotton, denim, drapery and tailoring, embroidery and lace, jacquard, knitted fabrics, linen and hemp, prints, shirting, silk, silky aspects, sportswear and functional fabrics, trims and accessories, wool and woollen materials.
Apparel Sourcing Paris is a major clothing sourcing platform for the European market. The wide range of products for men, women, children, and accessories include the entire price spectrum.
France is a major economic partner of Bangladesh. Both countries have developed strong economic cooperation and are enjoying warm business relationships. In fact, ready-made garment is the major Bangladeshi product for export earnings from France.
Export of other products, such as leather and footwear, shrimps and frozen fish, ceramic and pharmaceutical articles, has also increased.
At the expo, Bangladeshi participants spent a busy time with trade enquiries and buyers from the UK, France, Germany, Turkey and other European countries, according to the statement.
