Recently, Tanmoy Debnath, Team Leader, Business Development and Merchandising of Fashion Crew talked with Denim Focus Coordinator Pranta Biswas and shared his views about our RMG industry towards sustainable development. For our readers, the conversation is drafted below
Pranta Biswas: What is your observation about Bangladesh Denim Industry?
Tanmoy Debnath: In Bangladesh’s domestic market still, we are far from other countries, but within few years it might be possible to get a huge market share, and after a certain period, Bangladesh will not be importing denim garments from outside. As I know, most of the jeans manufacturers are thinking for local consumption already tested and already have seen their quality, but it is better than export.
Pranta Biswas: What was your experience during Covid-19 pandemic in 2020?
Tanmoy Debnath: Covid-19 has taught us many things. We drastically lost our business. Hopefully, within 2 years, we will be able to be the number 1 exporter of the world.
Pranta Biswas: How can we more develop in fashion sustainability and digitalization?
Tanmoy Debnath: To unlock profitability and reduce the fashion industries’ environmental impact, we must collaborate with all partners and stakeholders to implement sustainable manufacturing. Only then can we hope to accelerate sustainable change and restore the apparel industry’s environmental integrity and digitalization.
Pranta Biswas: How can we continue the positive branding of Bangladesh apparel industry?
Tanmoy Debnath: We can do positive branding by giving the right quality product at the right time. We need to deliver the goods as committed. Also, we need to follow the trends and knowledge about the product category of the customer.
Pranta Biswas: Any special message you want to convey to our “Denim Focus” readers and Bangladesh RMG industry?
Tanmoy Debnath: RMG sector of Bangladesh requires breaking into new products through more neutral and rational trade policy and taxation and bonded warehouse schemes; and concerted efforts to attract foreign direct investment, to encourage investment and export diversification. Bangladesh generally produces low-value RMG, which has the risk of facing more competitors. It is also a hindrance to acquiring more profit and sustainability. Bangladesh should not depend on few products; rather, it should expand its RMG products to make the sector resilient for the globe’s financial situation. A breakthrough is a necessity for the long-term survival of this sector.
