It is the most important expo of denim industry in the region and a hub where key denim industry players congregate and exchange views. For visitors it is an opportunity to discover everything that’s new in denim and to explore the latest technology, equipment and materials for use within the denim industry. Each edition of the Expo contains distinct theme in aligned with vision of sustainability. And last but not least there are first-choice seminars and knowledge sessions hosted by international experts."
The Expo will highlight the importance of the need for transparency within the entire denim development chain. Why do you think transparency is an important topic for the denim or textile industry and what will change with more transparency?
Mr Mostafiz Uddin: "Yes, the theme of the upcoming 7th edition of Bangladesh Denim Expo is ‘Transparency’. Transparency enables people to know who make their products – from who stitched them right through to who dyed the fabric and who farmed the cotton etc. When companies are working in a transparent way, this also implies openness, communication and accountability across the supply chain. As we are all committed toward a sustainable earth, transparency is essential for ensuring progress. The expo will highlight the importance of the need for transparency within the entire denim supply chain."
