B'desh govt to build more cargo sheds at Dhaka airport

The Bangladesh Government would construct more cargo sheds at the Dhaka's Shahjalal International Airport to facilitate proper storage of garments meant for exports, the Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister, Faruk Khan, has said.

The statement came in response to the complaints made by the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) Chief Shafiul Islam Mohiuddin during a meeting with the Minister at the latter's Secretariat.

The BGMEA Chief said owing to lack of adequate space in the cargo village sheds, the consignments remain stockpiled under open sky for longer periods, and hence the quality of the packages and garments inside them gets deteriorated.

Mr. Mohiuddin also voiced the contentions of the apparel exporters of the country that an organized group is engaged in stealing the exportable apparel items stored at the cargo village at the airport. These stolen garments are then openly sold in the city markets at cheaper prices, he added.

He informed the Minister that the buyers do not accept the consignment even if a single piece of apparel goes missing. Due to this, sometimes the entire consignment is rejected or exporters are required to pay heavy sum in demurrage.

BGMEA sought strict supervision and proper enforcement of law against those involved in stealing apparels meant for exports from the cargo sheds.

In addition, Bangladeshi apparel exporters are seeking a separate immigration desk at Dhaka airport to cater to overseas buyers and exporters, as the number of buyers as well as exporters is continuously rising.

Mr. Mohiuddin said lack of sufficient number of personnel to attend the buyers at the immigration desk is causing them to face lot of difficulties on arrival at the airport, and a separate immigration desk can ease the situation.
