The whole world has been suffering a lot from the COVID-19 pandemic. Every sector of the industry has been affected. The textile industry is the main remittance earning source for Bangladesh. This industry has been affected a lot due to lockdown everywhere and a shortage of orders. As everywhere vaccination has been started and the COVID-19 infection situation is better now. Fortunately, Bangladesh is receiving plenty of orders now. Team Textile Focus talked with industry stakeholders to know about their business in 2021 and furcating for 2022. Minhazul Hoque, Director, Fatullah Dyeing & Calendering Mills Ltd shared his views-

Textile Focus: How are you observing 2021 for your business?

Minhazul Hoque: Businesses in general have passed a tough time in the year 2021. While the fight against the pandemic is not yet won, the disruption in the supply chain along with the surge of covid-19 throughout, the year in a certain pattern is always a concern. Though this year has been much better than the last year, we are observing a decent growth within every month. It is not about how fast and quickly we recover our losses but how patiently we can cover our ground is the game.

Textile Focus: What is your expectation and planning for 2022?

Minhazul Hoque: 2022 will be the year of transition, the last two years has taught us many things, it is now time to reflect on those particular areas, barring any unexpected events, businesses might start to look forward to forming their futures rather than just grinding through the present. We are already observing an upward trend in business and we expect it will continue throughout the year.

With more and more countries getting vaccinated and confident consumer’s approach, we are hoping for a better year ahead. We have to accept the changes and believe in new normal and be proactive with the challenges. We have to believe that normal could be better and with good leadership, from both business and governments we could provide a foundation for the long term.
