Bangladesh trade show in July at Malysia

70 exhibitors comprising main players in various sectors are expected to take part in the showcase
THE second Showcase Bangladesh will be held at Exchange Trade Centre International at Dataran Merdeka for three days beginning July 13.
The showcase, featuring 70 exhibitors, is expected to be the largest, if not the most important exhibition, to be held there since the centre opened in April.

Bangladesh will be bringing its main players in the banking and finance sector, garment manufacturers, tour and hotel operators as well as suppliers of food and agricultural produce.

Former Bangladesh-Malaysia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BMCCI) president and chairman of the fair organising committee Syed Moazzam Hossain said the nation had lots to offer Malaysia since both share a long history of trade ties.

Among others, it is the second largest garment exporter in the world after China and sends large consignments to Europe, the United States and India.

“We grow cotton, have the skilled workers, and manufacture products with low prices but of high quality,” said Syed.

Food products made there are also halal, making its exports of beef and fish an attractive option for Malaysian halal importers.

“We have signed free trade agreements with almost all developed countries making our exports duty-free. Currently Malaysian exports to Bangladesh stands at US$1.8 billion (RM5.76 billion) while our exports to Malaysia is US$43 million. This trade exhibition is to bridge the disparity between the export value,” he said.

Present at the press briefing to launch the showcase were Bangladesh High Commissioner A.K.M Atiqur Rahman and BMCCI president Syed Nurul Islam.

The exhibition is organised by the governments of both countries and the Malaysia South-South Corporation Berhad, which was represented at the briefing by its general manager Ng Su Fan.

Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed are expected to attend the opening which will also be attended by Bangladesh’ Commerce Minister Ghulam Muhammed Quader, its Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister.
