The European Union has reassured Bangladesh of its continued support for the country’s readymade garment (RMG) trade and its further development.
 
EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton gave the assurance during her meeting with Bangladesh Foreign Minister Dipu Moni, on the sidelines of the Asia Security Summit in Singapore.
 
Various initiatives taken by the Bangladesh Government to address the flaws in the South Asian country’s garment sector were discussed by the Ministers at the meeting, according to BSS.
 
Ms. Moni informed the EU High Representative about the comprehensive plan of the Bangladesh Government, which includes all stakeholders, for ensuring better compliance in the garment sector.
 
She also briefed the EU representative about the setting up of new wage board and amendment to Labour Law.
 
On her part, Ms. Ashton said, the EU wants trade and investment to flourish in Bangladesh and expressed EU’s commitment to working in Bangladesh, especially in the interest of those working in the clothing sector, most of whom are women.
