Abrar Hossain Sayem, President BAYLA, Founder & CEO, Merchant Bay

Learning begins in the workplace where someone is responsible for a certain task and knowledge of that task and responsibility boosts anyone to develop skills. So continuing learning in professional life is more important than being confined to textbooks. Bangladesh’s RMG industry needs dynamic young leaders who can take on future challenges and lead the century. In this regard, I believe the new generation can prepare themselves and overcome future challenges by adapting to new technology.”

Md. Rakibul Islam Khan, Managing Director, Pakiza Knit Group & Pakiza Software Ltd.

QW4A6294 1

At present Bangladesh textile engineers are thinking of some areas to develop careers where less opportunity to grow and can come out to a lead position because the area has huge competition. So, for a better career path and to achieve quick success everyone should think out of the box or out of the traditional way. Now there are many places where textile engineers can grow their careers rather than traditional thinking. Textile engineers can better serve in the IE department, they can even work in the bank where needed textile expertise. Today, only different thinkers can do better in the workplace. So, think differently and do new think in a better way.


Moyeen Hyder Chowdhury, Country Manager Puma Bangladesh and Pakistan

We are human beings born to learn and utilize them in real life. So, our primary focus should be always on our achievements as human beings and thinking of how we are doing things. We should never point out to others that something bad happens to them rather we must consider our activities are the consequence of bad or good in our lives. Finally, we should have to be grateful to others who guided us, helped us, and took care of us like our beloved parents.”


Kyaw Sein Thay Dolly, Managing Director, Cloth “R Us Ltd.

Everyone must develop a clear vision for his life along with a desire to fulfill his dream. Success comes for those people who never stop before finishing their tasks. So, know yourself and discover what you are, then try to connect your dreams with your life to meet them. To develop your personality and fulfill dreams, learning habits are most important.

Without knowledge and personal prayer, no one can be successful in his life and never can meet his dream.”


AKM Saifur Rahman Forhad, Managing Partner, WIKITEX-BD,

Inspiration is like a lighter that needs only a little spark in life to make a blaze of success. Because you can overcome challenges. Everybody must develop personal skills by knowing the production process in the RMG industry.

In this regard, I believe the initiative of Textile Focus, organizing such a wonderful event can be a great source of developing personal skills and enriching industrial knowledge.”


Mayeesha Mahmud, Director, Cotton Group

To be successful everyone must focus on himself to have faster communication skills with the people. Learning to fail is the key tool to be successful in life so figure out the way to success. To be motivated one always needs to be attached to belief and this is the secret of success. Finally, honesty and ethical values are the best tools to stay strong in the personal and professional life.”


Mohammad Jahangir Alam, COO, Genesis Washing 

The textile industry is the biggest area to develop a career in so before entering the sector learning the sector is the most important. Because the RMG industry of Bangladesh is going towards diversification of products and so the industry needs dynamic leaders, who have technical expertise. Now it has been seen that young are more focused on earning money rather than learning. But success comes only when someone can believe in himself and be focused on career development.”


Sheikh Shaheenul Islam, CEO, Windy Group

For a successful professional life, honesty is the best way to develop personal growth. Because in the RMG business clients want honesty to depend on them as their partner. This can be developed by professionalism and expertise. Inspiration from the inside is the best way of motivation and setting a target can lead to a successful professional life. So, try to be smart from the inside and not deceive yourself. Do the right thing as a representative of the client at your desk when doing work for him. Finally, we must improve ourselves by multiple ways of learning and adapting to new technology that comes into the industry.”


Sakin Burc, CEO Queentex Kimya, Turkey
