Prospects of Ship Building Industry in Bangladesh Essays and Term Papers

...Bangladesh Shipbuilding industry now a promising sector November 15, 2007 The shipbuilding industry in Bangladesh is now becoming a promising sector as it has signed several contracts with Danish investors to build multipurpose vessels. On at least two instances, Danish shipping interests recently have placed substantial orders with Bangladeshi shipyards. Ananda Shipyard in Meghna Ghat and CS and Partnere A/S, a Danish ship consortium, have signed a agreement to build a ship, said a press release. The first ship – a 2,900 DWT multi-purpose vessel currently under construction at Ananda Shipyard and will be delivered in early 2008 – is the first of a series of up to 14 ships ordered by the Danish investors.The second order landed by a Bangladeshi shipyard was when Western Marine in Chittagong signed a contract to build up to 5 multipurpose vessels (4,100 DWT) to be delivered to a Danish ship consortium. ‘The two orders have positioned these shipyards as serious players in the international shipbuilding industry in strong competition with Chinese and Vietnamese shipbuilders, said Danish Ambassador to Bangladesh Einar Hebogard Jensen. ‘In order to live up to the highest international standards to design ship and to obtain international accreditation from bureaus such as “Germanisher Lloyd” and “Norske Veritas” it will be important for the shipyards to be able to import various fittings and components necessary for the ships to reach an international standard,’ Einar......

Problem and Prospect of Flower Industries of Bangladesh

...PROBLEMS AND PROSPECTS The Bangladesh government and the Bangladesh Aid Group have taken seriously the idea that Bangladesh is the test case for development. In the late 1980s, it was possible to say, in the somewhat patronizing tone sometimes adopted by representatives of donor organizations, that Bangladesh had generally been a "good performer." Even in straitened times for the industrialized countries, Bangladesh remained a favored country for substantial commitments of new aid resources from a strikingly broad range of donors. The total estimated disbursement for FY 1988 was estimated at US$1.7 billion, an impressive total but just US$16 per capita. Half of that total was for food aid and other commodities of limited significance for economic growth. Even with the greatest imaginable efficiency in planning and administration, resource-poor and overpopulated Bangladesh cannot achieve significant economic improvements on the basis of that level of assistance. In examining the economy of Bangladesh, wherever one turns the problems crowd in and threaten to overwhelm the analysis. Underlying problems that have threatened the young nation remain unsolved. These problems include overpopulation and inadequate nutrition, health, and education resources; a low standard of living, land scarcity, and vulnerability to natural disaster; virtual absence of valuable metals; and inadequate government and bureaucratic structures. Yet the brief history of independent Bangladesh offers......

Prospects of Ship Building Industry in Bangladesh

...Proceedings of MARTEC 2010 The International Conference on Marine Technology 11-12 December 2010, BUET, Dhaka, Bangladesh STUDY ON SOME COMPETITIVE PARAMETERS FOR SHIPBUILDING INDUSTRY IN BANGLADESH N. M. Golam Zakaria, M.M. Rahaman and Kh. Akhter Hossain Department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, Dhaka, Bangladesh gzakaria@name.buet.ac.bd ABSTRACT Despite Bangladesh has glorious history & heritage as a shipbuilding nation since ancient time, shipbuilding has been in focus only from the last couple of years. The optimism about this industry arose from the success attained by a number of local entrepreneurs who brought the name and fame to Bangladesh as a country with great potentials in shipbuilding by building and handing over some ocean-going vessels to overseas buyers. Since then, the shipbuilding in Bangladesh did not have to look back and now new opportunities are knocking at the door to flourish this industry further. However, due to global nature of this industry, an assessment of suitability to modern shipbuilding in terms of global standard is of prime importance. This paper focuses on studying some crucial competitive factors like labour skill, labour availability, labour man-hour, labour cost & productivity for local shipbuilding which are the inherent part for expansion of this industry. The analysis also focuses on the existing access to the resources like materials, knowledge and capital for......

Preferential Market Access for Bangladesh Leather Exports

...by the US Senators to review the special facilities for Bangladesh on grounds of labour related 'disagreements'. Not only the GSP beneficiaries, other exporters have also found the US lawmakers' plea alarming for the country's overall export sector. The GSP (Generalised System of Preferences) is the facility that allows duty-free export from a country. The US is the single-largest destination for the Bangladesh-made products. The country exported products worth $4.87 billion in 2011, while its export under GSP was $26.3 million led by tobacco products, frozen fish, furniture, ceramic and plastic products. About 95 per cent of Bangladeshi products being exported to the US market now enjoy duty-free access, less than one per cent of the country's total exports, that exclude RMG, leather and jute and jute goods. "Though the volume of plastic products' export to the US market is not very high, it is a potential market for us," president of Bangladesh Plastic Goods Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BPGMEA) Md Jashim Uddin told the FE. The US is one of the targeted markets for plastic products' export, which is also gradually increasing, he said adding the retail stores are showing interest in Bangladesh-made plastic products, especially the household ones. "If Bangladesh is taken out of the GSP facility list, we will lose our competitiveness," he said. Managing Director of Amam Sea Food Industries Ltd S Humayun Kabir said about 18 per cent of the......

Emergence of Export-Oriented Shipbuilding Industry in Bangladesh: Current Position & Future Prospects

...The export basket of Bangladesh is very limited where ready-made garments alone account for nearly 80 percent of its total exports. The extreme dependence of export earnings on the ready-made garments may pose serious threats in the near future. Thus, product diversification is necessary in that case shipbuilding could be a new horizon. The giant ship building nations such as Korea, Japan, China, and Vietnam have been booked with large orders for the next ten years. Some countries have already announced that they will not go for building ships less than 25,000 DWT (Dead Weight Tonnage). This opens up an opportunity for Bangladesh. If Bangladesh could nurture this opportunity with a helping hand from the government, as well as from other quarters, it could be the second largest export earning industry after ready-made garments within less than 10 years. But the shipbuilding industry of Bangladesh currently faces several problems such as high rate of bank guarantee, lack of working capital with low interest rate, lack of availability of land on river banks to build shipyards, etc., which should be solved on a priority basis to get results early from this industry. Bangladesh is a land of rivers and shipbuilding is synonymous with Bangladesh. Thousands of locallybuilt ships ply its inland waters. Almost 90 percent of petroleum and food products and 20 percent of passengers move through the waterways which has created the opportunity to build and use these......

Currently Bangladesh produces and exports quality bovine and ovine, caprine (buffalo and cow; sheep and goat) leathers that have a good international reputation for fine textured skins. However, the entire leather sector meets only 0.5% of the world’s leather trade worth US$75 billion. There are about 113 tanneries in Bangladesh that produce 180 million square feet of hides and skins per year. In addition there are about 30 modern shoe manufacturing plants engaged in the production of high-quality footwear, with over 2500 smaller footwear manufacturers also present in the sector. There are around 100 small-to-medium leather goods manufacturers, and a small number of niche larger manufacturers. The sector directly employs approximately 558 000 people. Most of the tanneries do not have proper effluent plants and generate 20 000m3 tannery......

...PROSPECT OF SHIP BUILDING INDUSTRIES IN BANGLADESH Md. Mahfujul Amin 10364075 Managerial Communication BUS 502 Spring 2011 BRAC UNIVERSITY Prospect of ship building industries in Bangladesh Abstract: Bangladesh has a thousand year old history in shipbuilding. There are more than 200 shipyards in the country, which are mainly engaged in building and repairing low quality inland vessels. Two shipwards have succeeded in making international classed vessels- and many more will come. It is about 15% cheaper to produce a ship in Bangladesh than anywhere else and the industry is expected to grow significantly. Introduction: Bangladesh is enjoying a boom in ship building. Driven by rising demand and a global supply shortage, existing players in the market have been able to capitalize on a global backlog in orders and sharp rises in prices. While investment in existing shipyards provides significant investment opportunities, investment in new yards may less compelling given two to three year lead times, a forecast fall in demand from 2011 and global dominance from China. However, leveraging its low cost base, adopting new technologies, coupled with government incentives and a strategic focus on areas...

...Analysis-of-leather-industry-of-babgladesh Chapter One: (Introduction) By- MD. Musawir Hasan http://edupedia.educarnival.com/ /September 6, 2012 Introduction The contribution of the industry sector to Bangladesh economy has been on the increase. Among the fifteen sectors identified for national income “Leather Industry” is one of them. Industry is the backbone upon which the economy of any country prevails. The growth of economy, the internal development of a nation depends upon the development of industrial sector. The cheap, reliable, and abundant labor available in Bangladesh is attractive to the world’s leading transnational corporations, but they have been very slow to move into the country, as they face regular industrial unrest led by radical trade unions, poorly developed infrastructure, red tape, and a very small local market. As in neighboring India, the Bangladeshi government promoted the idea of state-led industrialization combined with heavy state involvement in and state control of enterprise activities. This report is prepared as a fulfillment of partial requirement of “Industrial Organization and Management of Technology” course. It has been authorized by honorable course teacher Professor Syed Golam Maola to make a report on “Analysis of Leather Industries of Bangladesh”.

Leather Industry

...  INTRODUCTION Bangladesh has a very limited stock of known mineral resources (only natural gas is being extracted commercially), and the economy is heavily dependent on small-scale agriculture. Agriculture accounts for about 40 per cent of Bangladesh's GDP and about 60 per cent of employment. Landless small farmers and as well as urban informal groups constitute 50 per cent of Bangladesh's population. Fifty three per cent of rural population are virtually landless and the result of that a very large percentage of urban population live in slums. For example 30 per cent of the population (about 2 million) in Dhaka live in more than 1500 slums and squatter settlements, where density of settlements is over 6178 persons per hectare and per capita living space available is lower than one square meter. The structural conditions of the shelters are one of the worst in the world. The settlements live without open space, streets, water, gas and electricity, water, sanitation and sewerage facilities. Since these settlements are illegal the Government or International Aid Agencies have hardly any project to improve living quality of the poorest population of the country. Like many other cities of the developing countries the population of Dhaka city increased by almost 200 per cent in seven years (1974-81) due to the increasing developments of landless peasants. The present economic development increasingly widens the gap between the poor and the rich. The limited......
