Why are clothing brands shifting production to Bangladesh?

The trade war between the US and China has led fashion brands to shift production areas.

    More winners are emerging from the US-China trade war.

    To avoid the effects of the trade war, Chinese factories are relocating elsewhere in Asia.

    Bangladesh's large workforce and low wages give it a competitive edge in this labour-intensive industry.

    Bangladesh is seeing a boom as businesses shift production but workers say they are struggling to survive on the government-set minimum wage.
