GOTS Bangladesh Seminar 2019 (GBDS19) shall be held in Dhaka, Bangladesh on 8th September 2019.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) will host its second seminar in Bangladesh this autumn to update brands, exporters, certifiers, chemical industry, and other significant stakeholders on the country’s organic textile value chain.
The theme of this year´s seminar is ‘Connecting for Success’. GOTS Bangladesh Seminar 2019 serves to bring together the key players. Speakers shall include representatives from brands, exporters, certifiers, chemical industry, and other significant stakeholders.
In 2018, Bangladesh reached second position (after India) in terms of GOTS certified facilities in the country. This growth trend showcases the commitment of the Bangladeshi textile industry to not only use organic fibres, but also to environmental and social compliances. Fire and Building Safety are included in GOTS criteria and the country has made significant progress in all these areas.
To sustain this growth, it is important that the industry is strongly connected with other stakeholders in the organic textile value chain. While connections within the country are important; active engagement with international stakeholders including suppliers and buyers are vital to the success of the industry.
