Over the past few years, Bangladesh has witnessed and greatly benefited from rapid development of the export-oriented textile industry. The country has become the world’s No. 2 garment exporter after China, with the garment sector contributing 80 percent to its gross domestic product (GDP). Bangladesh also enjoys duty-free exports to the EU under the most privileged “Everything but Arms (EBA)” trade scheme, and gains a lot of support from its global trade partners. Among them, Germany, now the single largest export outlet for Bangladesh-made garments next to the U.S., has promised to help the country’s garment industry double its export volume. With these robust advantages, Bangladesh is emerging as a new garment manufacturing hub in Asia.
