Remittance inflows in the economy of Bangladesh are getting larger every passing year, matching with the increasing external
demand for its manpower. The ensuing development impacts of remittances, as a means of transfer of wealth, on socioeconomic
factors are increasingly viewed with importance. Remittances have helped improve the social and economic indicators like
nutrition, living condition and housing, education, health care, poverty reduction, social security, and investment activities of
the recipient households. The relative weight of remittances has also increased against most of the macroeconomic variables
alongside the contribution to GDP. Moreover, Bangladesh has been able to avoid any serious imbalances in BOP’s current
account, although it has persistent merchandize trade deficits. Not only that, but the export also tradable sector has thus far remained
unaffected from the Dutch Disease effects of remittances

As the world’s second largest garment exporter, Bangladesh is expected to export over $50 billion worth of garments by 2021. One of the major factors that drives Bangladesh’s booming textile and garment industry is the growing foreign direct investment in the industry. The country’s cheap textile labour, preferential location in the heart of the Asia-Pacific region, and government support are some of the reasons why an increasing amount of investment has been made in Bangladesh’s textile and garment industry.
According to the statistics from Bangladesh Bank, Bangladesh’s textile and garment industry experienced a surge in Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the last fiscal year of 2016, with FDI totalling over $396 million, representing a 11% increase from the previous year’s $351.6 million. This surge marks a successful rebound of FDI from the economic slump in the country’s textile and garment industry after achieving a record high of FDI of $445.8 million in fiscal year of 2014.
With the total foreign investment in Bangladesh’s textile and garment industry in the last fiscal year, some $222.86 million was invested as reinvested earnings of the current companies that are already operating in the country. South Korea was the largest investor for Bangladesh’s textile and garment industry in fiscal year 2016 – several South Korean apparel companies invested over $111.6 million, representing over 32% of the total FDI in the sector, followed by Hong Kong’s $89.07 million. FDI from the United States stood at a modest $33.02 million.
Currently, Bangladesh is the world’s second largest garment exporter in the world after China. The South Asian country also enjoys tariff-free market access in the EU, Canada, Australia and other major textile and garments markets. An increasing number of international investors and famous fashion brands, such as Zara, H&M, Gap and Levi’s, are already manufacturing and importing clothes from Bangladesh.
