Bangladesh RMG industry seeks active govt support
Jan '12
The readymade garment industry (RMG) of Bangladesh has sought Government's active support in infrastructure development and enhancing the skill of employees.

Speaking at a conference on "The future of the RMG sector in Bangladesh", Firoz Ahmed, General Secretary of Bangladesh Textile Mills Association (BTMA), said there is an immediate need to grow infrastructure facilities like railway, road, waterway, energy and gas supply system to greatly boost country's overall exports.

The Bangladesh garment industry has for long been enduring severe scarcity of skilled manpower, following which the industry entrepreneurs are being able to use only up to 60 percent of their capacity, Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) President M Shafiul Islam Mohiuddin said.

He said that the RMG sector has been looking forward to the Government to take some measures to resolve the issue in greater interest of the nation, but nothing has materialized yet.

He added that the lack of coordination between Government agencies and private sector has been impeding the growth of the country.

Commerce Secretary Md. Ghulam Hussain, who was present during the discussion in his capacity as the Chief Guest, said policies play a major part in long-term development of any country, but lack of coordination between different Government sections is acting as an impediment to adoption of new ideas by the Government.

Mr. Hussain, however, assured the Government's total support to the country's garment industry and said the Government would put in best of its efforts to fetch a solution to the issues faced by the country's RMG industry. He also stressed on developing a brand image of the country.
