Abstract: Though Bangladesh is an agro-based developing country, garments sector plays the most significant role to be laid on with the industrialization process. Actually before the independence this sector was introduced, but it is booming just after the independence in a large scale. Nevertheless, today the garments export sector has grown into a $6 billion industry that employs over millions of people. However, from a different look, its contributions is not regarding to the economic factors, rather than more important to the social factors including the process to reducing gender discrimination by empowering woman, balanced distribution of social power management by reducing socio-economic inequalities etc. Well consultation, training and development program may help to overcome the constraints from the garments industry and by the way, near future, the contribution of garment industry towards socio economic development of Bangladesh will be improved a lot as well as be sustained longer too.
