His observation came while speaking as the chief guest at the inaugural session of a three-day training course on `Improvement of Production Management Skills for the Garment Industry’ in the city’s Spectra Convention Centre here on Saturday.

Inoue said no company could prosper in the world market without ensuring quality of products, as quality is of paramount importance to the customers.

Association of Overseas Technical Scholarship (AOTS), Japan, Pegasus Sewing Machine Manufacturing Company and Pegasus Sewing Machine Private Limited, Singapore, jointly organised the course to help garment manufacturers in Bangladesh achieve grand success in RMG with optimum level of skills and minimum cost.

Japan-Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JBCCI) President Abdul Haque, JETRO Representative in Dhaka Tomohiro Kinomoto, President of Pegasus Singapore Masayuki Okumura, Kazumi Kawata of Pegasus Sewing Machine Manufacturing Co Ltd, Japan, AOTS Bangladesh-Nepal Representative Moazzem Hossain and Pegasus Bangladesh Ltd Liaison Office DGM Imrul Islam Khan, among others, attended the function.

The Japanese ambassador said many of the world-known companies could not survive, as they only hankered after profit instead of maintaining the quality of products.

He expressed the hope that Bangladeshi products would become a famous brand across the globe by proving its high quality.

The JBCCI president said the mission of his association is to promote more investment from Japan to Bangladesh to expand the pace of industrialisation here.

“We will continue such training programmes in the days ahead to enhance skill of Bangladeshi manufacturers”, he said and laying emphasis on ensuring quality of products.
