Bangladesh RMG makers express concern over strike
Mar '13
Readymade garment (RMG) manufacturers of Bangladesh have expressed concern about various strikes called by the political parties in the country since they are hampering the production and productivity of the industry.  According to the various apparel industry representatives in the country, the three-day strike by the Jamaat-e-Islami and Bangladesh Nationalist Party has created a negative impact on the country’s economy.

Speaking to fibre2fashion, first vice-president of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), Mr. Nasir Uddin Chowdhury said, “Bangladesh clothing exporters are facing tough situation now, since continuous strikes called by various political parties are delaying the exports to the various destinations.”

“Several clothing manufacturers are reluctant about exports since the strikes have hampered our production and productivity. It is creating a negative impact on the country’s economy,” he adds.

Mr. Abdus Salam Murshedy, president of Exporters Association of Bangladesh, says, “The apparel manufacturers are not able to import fabrics including cotton and man-made fabrics from countries such as India and China due to the strikes in Bangladesh.”

He concurs with Mr. Chowdhury on the impact of strikes on Bangladesh economy. He opines, “The strikes could create a negative impact on the country’s economy.”

“We urge the various political parties to save the country’s economy by seeking different ways of protest which would not affect the production and trade of apparel products,” he adds.
