Bangladesh Garments Accessories & Packaging

   Manufacturers & Exporters Association (BGAPMEA)


In our neighboring country every state has a packaging institute. But no such institute exits in our country. For this reason a study was done by ITC funded by EU where they have proposed to establish a Packaging Institute in Bangladesh in order to produce quality type of Garments accessories & Packaging products.  Govt. support & assistance is needed for capacity building to set up Garments accessories & packaging institute in our country, access to finance, Infrastructural facilities, Technology & Product quality to boost up this largest SME sector & to make hassle free export. It is our cherished dream to set up a Garments Accessories & Packaging Institute for the development of this sector in Bangladesh. We have been pursuing different donor agencies for last several years. Finally International Trade Center (ITC) and the European Union (EU) have agreed to finance & conduct survey for development of Packaging sectors in Bangladesh. Accordingly they have conducted survey in accessories & packaging sectors and submitted a report to the Government.


This Association has also decided to set up a National Institute of Packaging & Accessories (NIPA) in Bangladesh. A feasibility study was undertaken by the Association in cooperation with the European University of Bangladesh under EU INSPIRED Project. In the feasibility report, a training Institute is recommended for skill manpower for flourishing this sector. In the mean time, we got an Institutional Plot of Rajuk located at Purbachal. We are also trying to pursue with Bangladesh Govt. for setting up this Institute as early as possible.
