The president stated that BKMEA has created a sustainable position by exporting knitwear products in the world. It is high time to evaluate BKMEA as a potential cooperative partner of Govt. Some people assume that Bangladesh will not able to defray continuing knitwear business, but we want to declare it incontrovertibly that no-body can snatch knitwear from Bangladesh. But we should stop bad practices of competition among us, especially different Price Biding, though the price is low comparing product quality, to the same buyer to get the buyers attraction. As a result our best quality product losses the expected price that we deserve. It’s very much important to maintain a structured product pricing system. If we can establish this culture, the knitwear will remain safe in Bangladesh.
