BGMEA President Faruque Hassan met with the newly appointed Trade Commissioner and Director of Trade Promotion Office of the Italian Embassy Alessandro Liberatori at Gulshan in Dhaka on October 22.
BGMEA Director Asif Ashraf was also present at the meeting.
During the meeting, they discussed possible avenues for strengthening development cooperation and boosting bilateral trade between the two countries.
They also talked about how Bangladesh could increase its apparel export share in the Italian market, especially in the high-end product segment, an area where Bangladeshi suppliers are putting a lot of emphasis.
BGMEA President Faruque Hassan said Bangladesh and Italy have huge potential to derive mutual trade benefits that are yet to be tapped.
He requested Trade Commissioner Alessandro Liberatori to encourage Italian businessmen to invest in the emerging industrial sectors in Bangladesh, including the non-cotton textile sector.
He invited Alessandro Liberatori to the “Made in Bangladesh Week” which will be organized by BGMEA on 12-18 November 2022 in Dhaka to promote Bangladesh and the RMG industry internationally.
