The Government of Bangladesh would consider appointing a lobbyist firm to gain duty and quota free access for its products, including readymade garments, in the US, Foreign Minister Dipu Moni has said.
Speaking to reporters after a meeting with the visiting five-member US Congressional delegation, led by Jack Kingston, the Minister said Bangladesh must consider appointing a lobbyist firm to look after the business interests of the country in the US.
She said the lobbyist firm would project Bangladesh’s achievements in the US Congress, and lobby for retaining the existing duty facility under Generalised System of Preference (GSP) and pursue duty and quota-free market access for other Bangladeshi products, including apparels.
The Minister said the Government briefed the US team on the progress made on various issues like workers’ safety and other areas. She added that a detailed paper would soon be sent to the US Government and lawmakers enlisting the development and women employment taking place in the country’s apparel sector.
She said the Congressional delegation members agreed that accidents also occur in developed countries, but there should be well-coordinated efforts to reduce the casualties to zero.
