Apparel exporters in Bangladesh have expressed concern over the rise in yarn prices in the domestic market. With the country receiving more work orders as stores open in Europe and the United States following mass vaccination in those countries, an unusual increase in yarn prices has made it tough for garment manufacturers to accept the orders, they lamented.

Representatives of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), the Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BKMEA) and the Bangladesh Terry Towel & Linen Manufacturers & Exporters Association (BTTLMEA) said this at a meeting held at the BGMEA office on August 8. BGMEA president Faruque Hassan chaired the meeting. They said domestic mills are increasing yarn prices every day and providing proforma invoice with a short time limit, which makes it difficult to open letter of credit.

The Spot Rate remained unchanged at Rs 13800 per maund. The Polyester Fiber was available at Rs 222 per Kg.
