Background Information from UKTI 

The Bangladesh economy is developing and in transition. The ready-made garments industry is responsible for nearly 80% of the country’s export revenue. Other sectors, for example seafood, ceramics, pharmaceuticals and software development, are growing and contributing positively to Bangladesh’s economy. Foreign investment, including from the UK, has begun to filter into Bangladesh in these sectors, particularly in garments. Local companies involved in exporting need foreign machinery, equipment, services and expertise to improve the quality of the products they offer to international markets.

The UK is one of the largest investors in Bangladesh, with approximately £2 billion in investment projects to date and some 70 UK firms operating successfully across Bangladesh. Trade in goods doubled between 2006 and 2011. The UK is also the third single largest destination for exports from Bangladesh, with garments and seafood accounting for the bulk of total sales to the UK.
