Export earnings from the electronics sector will overtake the readymade garment sector, Salman Fazlur Rahman, private industry and investment advisor to the prime minister, said Saturday after visiting the Walton factory in Gazipur.
"When Walton says 'Made in Bangladesh', it's made in Bangladesh. This means Walton manufactures every spare part. Research and development is most vital for achieving the target of becoming a developed country within 2041, and Walton is doing excellent work in this sector,'' he added.
Walton Hi-Tech Industries Limited Managing Director and CEO Golam Murshed said: "The electronics sector is the future of Bangladesh."
"The 'Made in Bangladesh' Walton products are being exported to more than 40 countries. Walton holds 75 per cent of the country's refrigerator, 50 per cent of AC and 40 per cent of the TV market."
