The special inspection committee, constituted by the Bangladesh Government on May 1, 2013 to look into the building structure and environment of readymade garment (RMG) factories in the country, has submitted its report to the Cabinet Committee on RMG enlisting 11 recommendations.
 
The 460-page report was submitted by the Jute and Textiles Minister Abdul Latif Siddiqui, also the chief of the inspection committee, to Rajiuddin Ahmed Raju, Minister of Labour and chief of the Cabinet Committee on RMG, at a meeting of the Cabinet Committee in Dhaka.
 
The report has been prepared after random inspections carried out at 227 garment factories across Bangladesh by 11 sub-committees led by joint secretaries from different ministries.
 
Talking to reporters after the meeting of the Cabinet Committee on RMG, Commerce Minister GM Quader said the report stresses on structural safety, workplace safety and workers’ welfare.
 
It makes 11 recommendations for garment workers and factories, which would attract overseas buyers and result in the growth of the apparel industry in the country, he added.
 
The Cabinet Committee on RMG will now work further on the report and is soon expected to come out with a plan of action, based on the recommendations by the inspection committee.
 
The garment sector in Bangladesh employs around 4 million people, with around 80 percent of them being women.
