Bangladesh Apparel makers target upscale market

Garments producer Ananta Group is going to open a factory at the Adamjee Export Processing Zone (APEZ) on the outskirts of Dhaka to exclusively produce high-end suits for a buyer in Europe.

The $20 million factory is now under construction and is expected to go into production from next July. The group has been sending apparel to international buyers over the years, but mostly basic garment items.
