Blake visited Echotex and Dalas Fashions in Bangladesh. Both the factories receive support from the UK through the Skills and Employment Programme in Bangladesh (Sudokkho) and the UK's work to support National Action Plan for the Ready-made Garment Sector in Bangladesh (the SNAP-B Programme).
The UK has increased its support to improve safety and workplace conditions in Bangladesh post the Rana Plaza tragedy in 2013.
Blake said, “With increasing competition in the global apparels trade, Bangladesh needs to maintain its competitive edge and capitalise on its largest asset - its human resources. Investing in the skills development of its workforce, as Echotex has done using its in-house facilities, will help it do this.” (HO)
