Abstract

This paper comparatively analyses the policies adopted by both Bangladesh and Vietnam in the ready-made garment industry to encourage FDI in this industry. It provides a snapshot of whether FDI and export oriented industrial policies have been effectively pursued to propel the garment industry in acquiring the know-hows and moving into more complex garment production technology. The findings show that to some extent, the Vietnamese policies are somewhat aligned to attract FDI as opposed to Bangladesh. It is imperative for both the countries to pursue industrial policies to encourage FDI in this industry to assist these countries to propel to the next level of industrialization.
