BGMEA seeks Russian support for RMG exports

Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) has sought cooperation from Russia to remove the bilateral trade barriers and facilitate exports of readymade garments and other Bangladeshi products to its market.

Russian Ambassador to Bangladesh Alexander Vikentyevich Mantytskiy called upon BGMEA President Faruque Hassan in the capital Thursday.

They had discussions on various trade-related issues, especially how bilateral trade could be enhanced.

BGMEA President Faruque Hassan said Russia is a promising market where there is a great demand for Bangladeshi garments. “But barriers to transactions through banking channels and tariff complications are stumbling blocks to apparel exports to the country.”

BGMEA Vice-President Miran Ali and First Secretary at the Russian Embassy in Dhaka Anton Vereshchagin were also present.
