How easy to do business with a Bangladeshi fashion production house?
I would say, they are very professional nowadays. BGMEA and BKMEA, have taken several steps to upgrade the education of these industry contributors. Every curriculum in the universities is in English. So, they are very fluent to communicate with you.
Language is one big reason for this. Unlike other major textile exporting nations, such as China and Vietnam, English is an official language in Bangladesh.
Bangladeshi sales reps and export managers are excellent in English. It goes without saying that Bangladeshi suppliers are far easier to communicate with.
Personally, I also find it easier to understand the mindset of Bangladeshi sales reps and export managers. Communication is not as indirect and vague as it often can be when dealing with Chinese and Vietnamese suppliers.
Still, Bangladesh is a developing country with a long way to go. Their textiles industry is one of the best in the world, but you must still manage the process properly, to avoid quality issues and delays.
