An International Flower Exhibition and Conference 2018 will be held at the capital’s Bangabandhu International Conference Center from December 6 to 8. 

“The main aim of this event is to attract investors and businessmen to this flourishing sector,” Abul Kasem Khan, President of Dhaka Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI) said at a press conference at its premises on Tuesday.

He also said that the country's local flower market hovers Tk1,200 crore.

"Around 70 national and international SME's will exhibit and promote their products and services at the fair,” he added.

International Trade Center (ITC) in its study showed global exports over the last few years have grown by more than 10% annually.

DCCI will organize the three-day event in partnership with USAID and Bangladesh Flower Society (BFS). 

Abdur Rahim, president of BFS, said: “Around 10,000 hectares of land is being cultivated in this regard. Currently, more than 25,000 families are engaged in cultivating flowers and 200,000 people are directly and indirectly dependent on this sector.” 

“Bangladesh has a competitive advantage due to its favourable climate, topography, low labor cost and relatively low capital investment - which helps this sector to thrive,” he added. 

Awar Faruque, former secretary at the Ministry of Agriculture, said that the flower industry is now a global and dynamic industry, which has achieved significant growth during the past few decades. 

Lee Rosner, USAID chief of party, among others, was also present during the occasion.
