Official Trade Bodies

Trade Bodies of Bangladesh

There are many trade bodies in Bangladesh. The Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) is the apex representative organization safeguarding the interest of the private sector in trade and industry in Bangladesh. The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) is the officially recognized apex apparel export trade body of 4,490 apparel manufacturing units.

The BGMEA also acts as a pressure group to protect the interests of the RMG sector and acts as a facilitator of trade negotiations with global trade bodies such as the WTO, ILO, and UNCTAD. MCCI, established in 1904, is the oldest and most representative trade organization of Bangladesh having in its membership roll most leading commercial and industrial organizations including almost all the public sector corporations and all multinational companies. The services of the Chamber’s Tribunal of Arbitration, which has been adjudicating commercial disputes for a long time, have earned wide-spread recognition within the country and abroad.
