She said the leaders promised her of EU’s continued support to the Bangladesh garment sector which employs millions of workers, most of whom are female.
 
Replying to a question on the continuation of the US Generalised System of Preference (GSP) facility for Bangladesh, the Minister said the US authorities are currently reviewing the same.
 
She added that a Bangladesh team comprising officials from the Ministry of Commerce, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Labour and Employment have discussed the GSP facility issue with the US authorities and the hearing on the same is now concluded.
