The country’s capacity to meet local demands is increasing but it requires more investment, Abdus Salam Murshedy, managing director of Envoy Textile, a denim fabric manufacturer, told the Dhaka Tribune. For grabbing more market share in the global market, Bangladesh has to concentrate on washing as it adds value as well attracts buyers, he said.

The government has to ensure utility service including gas and electricity supply for the sector to attract investment, Salam suggested.
