Bangladesh is a "very serious player" in the global clothing market, given its expertise and quality and can't be ignored. This showcase is a shining example of Bangladesh's emergence as global apparel manufacturer and exporter.

This is a sign of Bangladesh's maturity of industrial processes and competence apart from expertise of workers and manufacturers.
