Garment Sector Reform

Region: South Asia
Country: Bangladesh

ASI supported the Government of Bangladesh to negate the impact of a WTO trade agreement on the domestic garment sector. We worked with business associations to evaluate alternative solutions and developing strategies to address the key problems and opportunities. This included the development of alternative export product/markets; industry development for the domestic market; "cluster industries" that could add value to products where Bangladesh has a comparative or competitive advantage; improved market intelligence for producers; and retrenchment packages.
