DHAKA, May 2 (Xinhua) -- The 10th edition of "Bangladesh Denim Expo" has been under way in capital Dhaka.

The exhibition has been offering unique panel of companies exhibiting their products and practices centered on the theme of this year's expo, Circularity.

The theme is to raise awareness and open debate about the need to embrace circular business practices, said the organizers in a statement.

“We live in a world where we are producing too much clothing product that is then discarded rather than reused, recycled or repurposed - this linear business model is unsustainable for the future,” said Mostafiz Uddin, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Bangladesh Apparel Exchange (BAE) and Bangladesh Denim Expo, in the statement.

"We've chosen Circularity as the theme of the expo because it is one of the most pressing topics facing the denim industry, and the wider apparel industry at present,” said Mohiuddin Rubel, managing director of BAE.

According to the organizers, a total of 63 exhibitors from 11 countries and regions including China, Turkey, Italy and Spain are participating in the show which started Thursday.
