Feb '16
Bangladeshi Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed has claimed that Dutch ambassador to Bangladesh Leoni Cuelenaere has lauded the country's worker-friendly apparel sector that has emerged after the Rana Plaza tragedy.

"The Netherlands envoy to Bangladesh lauded the remarkable progress of our apparel sector. Ready-made Garments (RMG) sector is now safe and worker-friendly," he told reporters after emerging from a meeting with the newly-appointed Netherlands envoy in Dhaka.
Leoni Cuelenaere said Bangladesh has achieved remarkable progress in the RMG sector and it is now the second highest RMG exporter in the world.

Ahmed said the Netherlands government had provided a huge financial assistance to the country after the Rana Plaza tragedy.

He said the Dutch government praised the RMG sector for creating a congenial environment in factories by ensuring fire safety measures and building safety.

The minister said the Netherlands is a big market for the country's apparel sector. During his meeting with the Dutch envoy, they discussed various issues, including investment, trade and commerce. (SH)
