B'desh seeks duty free access for exports to US

Bangladesh Ambassador to the United States Mohammad Ziauddin has urged the US government to allow Duty Free and Quota Free (DFQF) access of Bangladeshi products, particularly ready-made garments to the US markets, according to a press release of the Bangladesh embassy in Washington.

"Bangladesh, the current LDC Chair and the largest apparel exporter to the USA along with other Asian LDCs, do not get Duty Free Quota Free access of their products to the US market although 34 African LDCs are enjoying this facility," he said.

He said the US, on the basis of justice and equal treatment, should consider all LDCs to get DFQF access, especially when the EU is providing such facility to all 48 LDCs.

The ambassador's remarks came during a meeting with US Congressman Mike Kelly in Washington on Tuesday.

Ambassador Ziauddin briefed Kelly, who is the Member of the House Ways and Means Committee dealing with tax, trade and economic growth policies, on various development activities of Bangladesh.

Kelly praised the dynamic and robust economy of Bangladesh. He said he would consider the DFQF issue positively. He emphasized on opening a line of communication to exchange further information in this regard.

The Ambassador told the Congressman that the present government attaches high priority to women empowerment and education. He said 90 per cent of four million workers in the RMG industry are women who have stepped out of their homes and are contributing to poverty alleviation, literacy, and above all weakening extremism and reinforcing the government efforts to eliminate extremism and terrorism.
