Potentials and advantages of Bangladeshi shipbuilding
industry lies in growing domestic market, competitiveness
for international small vessel segment, and availability of
skilled engineers and workers. The World Bank Group
estimates that Bangladeshi shipbuilding grows at 10-15% per
annum on average for the next decade. Today, Bangladesh has
more than 100 shipbuilding yards, with most serving the
local market, worth more than Tk 3,000 crore.
Our economy has needed to diversify its product and export
basket and reduce our dependence on the RMG sector, the
shipbuilding industry so that it can become a major foreign
currency earning source for the country.
