DHAKA, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) — After two years of pandemic-induced doldrums, Bangladesh’s 21st edition of the “Textech Bangladesh International Expo 2022” is being held here from Aug. 31 to Sept. 3.

The expo is accompanied by two concurrent exhibitions titled the “18th Dhaka International Yarn & Fabric Show 2022-Summer Edition” and “40th Dye+Chem Bangladesh 2022 International Expo”, and focuses on the international textile apparel technology and the machinery industry of Bangladesh.

A total of 300 companies from 12 countries, including many from China, have been showcasing their products.

Wang Xia from Chinese Yantai Ocean Biology Co., Ltd joined the fair for the first time. “We’re very grateful to the Bangladeshi people for their support. The Bangladeshi people are very friendly. China and Bangladesh are good friends,” she said.

“Our plan is to hold a meeting this year and open an office in Bangladesh next year to provide after-sales service to all local customers,” she said.

Spinning, weaving, knitting machines and yarn processing equipment, chemicals and dyes, embroidery and sewing materials among other products are on display during the event, where sector insiders get tips straight from professionals to discover ways to improve efficiency in their factories, according to the organiser.

Chandra Shekhar Ghosh is the owner of Source Creation, a local firm. He said this grand annual exhibition has played the role of a bridge. “China is the paradise of textiles,” he said.

“Here we get many things in one place, in one block we get everything, right from fabric to accessories. We thank those who organised it, and thank those who attended, and we’re able to meet our business targets,” he said.

Angela, a representative of High Hope Zhongtian Corporation, a Chinese company engaging in export business of garments, fabrics and home textiles, said she was pleased as many visitors have shown interest to do business with her company.

An Qiang, who joined the exhibition on behalf of Shandong Lanyan Textiles Co. Ltd, was optimistic about attaining better results from the exposition.

He said they are engaged in the sector of denim and denim garments. “Our new technology can save 30 percent of the indigo solution usage. In the light of increased production costs in the indigo industry, the adoption of this new technology can save production costs,” he said.

He hoped that the exhibition would pave the way for better garment industry outputs after two years of lacklustre.

Conference and Exhibition Management Services Limited (CEMS), a global event management company, organised the international exhibition through its Bangladeshi wing.

Meherun N Islam, president and managing director of CEMS, told Xinhua that they are expecting up to 14,000 visitors to the exhibition.
