The most valuable use of time now will be to invest in improvement of management system and people efficiency
Md. Amanur Rahman, Managing Director, Dysin International Ltd.
Bangladesh Garment and Textile Industry has initially been hit hard with order cancellations due to Covid-19 Pandemic. In June, most of the factories opened up and we are seeing encouraging movement in sales of our chemicals, regaining up to 50-70% of pre-covid period.
We are hopeful for better performance of our industry in coming months. This is due to gradual opening up of businesses in our destination markets. Other factors that may contribute to the recovery and growth includes promising export growth of PPE Gown and Mask and also possible shifting of business from other countries to Bangladesh.
Bangladeshi Industry can add value in terms of development of technical capabilities for production and testing of PPE Gown & Mask. It is also right time to try new products and new destination markets. The most valuable use of time now will be to invest in improvement of management system and people efficiency.
