Dhaka Textile and Garment Machinery (DTG) will take place February 23 to 26, 2017. This is Bangladesh’s largest textile and garment trade fair. Showcasing new technology, state-of-the-art equipment, materials and services, DTG is also an avenue for international suppliers and visitors to expand their business. DTG offers Bangladesh exporters an opportunity to expand their supply chains globally.
Fairs within Bangladesh project the quality of exports to visitors from home and abroad. Local producers in remote areas of rural Bangladesh who do not have the financial strength to participate in international trade fairs have the opportunity to display their products to buyers from abroad at such fairs. On the other hand, overseas participants have the opportunity to display their products to consumers of Bangladesh, where the domestic market for consumer goods is expanding.
Besides foreign participants have the opportunity to display their state-of- the-art technology to local producers and exporters. Entrepreneurs can exchange views and knowledge that would help them to improve quality of products and establish a network with buyers. The industry needs to seek some other way to bring apparel costs down without compromising on the currently offered quality. What better way to do so than revisiting raw material sourcing?
