Ahasanul Haque and Mahbubur Rahman

Abstract:

The selected four categories textile and seven categories apparel product are taken into account on the basis of three digit level Standard International Trade Classification (SITC) for the period between (1985 until 1999). The RCA calculation clearly indicates an increasing strength of comparative advantage of Bangladesh in the textile as well as apparel products, This is mainly due to the negligible import for these products. The CMS results suggest that export gain of mainly due to the negligible import for these products. The CMS results suggest that export gain of Bangladesh for textile and apparel are largely attributed to the size of the market and also to her competitiveness efforts. The CMS analysis also depicts that the competitiveness effect of apparel products are subsequently improved in general during the period I and III (1985-89 and 1995-99) as compared to those for period I and II (1985-89 and 1990-94) and period II and III (1990-94 and 1995-99).
