Manufacturing behemoths

Do you think a factories workforce is just the people who assemble the parts?
Boeing does research, design, development, engineering, final assembly. Parts and subsystems are built by suppliers. That is why the 'factories' look so empty. Most profitable part of airplane building is done by Boeing in its 'workers' heads. Same with Intel, Microsoft, Google etc., If the software engineers from Microsoft drive across the border from Redmond to Vancouver, a two trillion dollar 'factory' moves from U.S. to Canada.

I have no idea why you do not understand that a factory has workers apart from the assembly people. You need to include all the people on the site as part of the "factory".

You are moving the thread into a pointless tangent.

The fact is that BD by in large has much larger factories as seen in both garments and even in electronics when compared to India, although the BD electronics industry is much smaller than garments.

Indian manufacturing is not as efficient as BD as it split between smaller factories compared to the larger BD ones.

Large factories, all skills under one roof, gives scale and huge efficiencies.

India simply cannot compete at that level.

All I am saying is that different industries are not comparable in their division of labor vs. capital. I have no insight into comparative efficiencies between Bangladesh and India. I was only trying to argue that not all industries should be viewed through the prism of garment industry, at which Bangladesh obviously excels.
 
These high tech industries do not lift a country out of poverty.

In fact, they create poverty.

Classic examples are: U.K. and USA.

Both countries lost its mid to low skilled manufacturing to China.

And now have massive and endemic poverty in its ex manufacturing hubs.

High population countries should focus on labour intensive industries.

And low population countries should focus on high tech.

That's true,the US is so desperate to bring these low end manufacturing back.

Over a dozen of BD's 100 SEZs to be built and operational by 2030 are already in action.

Some of these factories in the SEZs built by BD companies employ more than 1000 people each.

Something special is happening in BD right now that we saw in the late 20th century in the former "Asian Tiger" economies. India cannot compete at all.
 
Britain gets rich due to its garment factory during industrial revolution. The reason they colonize South Asia is due to get the source of cotton and secure the supply chain of their textile industry

Best for the world to watch out for Bangladesh then. This country is already demonstrating hegemonic tendencies.

Ball spinner here how does, increased ai robotics coming to play that will possibly get rid of some low skilled- mid skilled jobs?

Also these ai robotics taking back some of these industries back to western countries?

Muslim Bengal was the original garment superpower.

Then it was stolen by Britain and then the Asian Tigers and China.

Garments doesn’t lend itself to robotics.

Far too varied set of products requiring nimble fingers.

Robots are best suited to hard assembly type manufacturing.

AI is likely to destroy India’s call centre industry this decade. Leading to mass unemployment.

It will take decades and decades before AI robotics are able to do the low-skilled factory jobs and by then BD would be a high middle-income country at least with most of its population employed in the higher-skilled service economy.

Anyway in 10-15 years time, BD will probably export as much to India and China as the whole West combined. The West will then just be another pole among many in the world economy as far as BD is concerned.

Next use of AI will be in the call centre industry.

Google’s AI bot looks excellent.

And will soon be used in the call centre industry.

It will improve customer experience and massively reduce cost.

We all know China has thousands of mega factories I.e. those that employ thousands of people.

In the last decade, under Hasina’s stewardship, Bangladesh has opened 100s of factories that employ thousands of people.

However, I am not aware of many Indian factories that employ thousands of people. India’s manufacturing is dominated by the “informal sector” - to escape militant trade unions and punitive taxes.

And I am not aware of any Pakistani factories that employ thousands of people. Please send link if you have any.

@UKBengali being the resident economics expert - do you think we have the land to open thousands of mega factories?
You should consume more banana. Propaganda isn't your cup of tea.
