The Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD), Bangladesh, has released its first monitoring report on the Rana Plaza tragedy, at a discussion on “100 Days of Rana Plaza Tragedy: A Report on Commitments and Delivery” in Dhaka.
CPD, along with a number of concerned civil society organizations and individuals, has taken an initiative to independently monitor what is being done since the Rana Plaza tragedy and accordingly mount pressure on key stakeholders so that appropriate and adequate actions are taken.
Participating in the discussion, Bangladesh Commerce Minister GM Quader said as per the commitment to various international organizations, the Government would soon disclose the action plan to all stakeholders.
Talking about achieving full compliance in the country’s readymade garment sector, the Minister said the Government would encourage the new industries to be set up in compliance with the international standard, which would help in gradual elimination of inferior factories from the country. 
He informed that the Government has already formed an 11-member committee under the Textile Ministry tasked with looking over the disaster related issues of the garment sector.
Professor Mustafizur Rahman, executive director of CPD, said monitoring is necessary because despite having recommendations following past readymade garment (RMG) industry disasters, promises towards compensation and making the factories safe and secure faded away.
Dr. Debapriya Bhattacharya from CPD also requested the Government and other stakeholders to make available all follow-up and monitoring reports undertaken since the tragedy.
Maintaining detailed database of future workers; provision of insurance, provident and development fund; addressing unplanned industrialisation and sealing off faulty factories for averting future disasters; and implementing labour law were some of the recommendations made by speakers during the discussion.
