The readymade garment (RMG) sector in Bangladesh would soon get an industrial park at Gazaria, near Munshiganj, Labour Secretary Mikail Shipar has said, reports UNBconnect.
 
The Government has already completed the preliminary works for acquisition of about 530 acre land for setting up the garment industrial park, Mr. Shipar said while speaking at a dialogue titled “Rana Plaza Tragedy and Beyond: An Update on Commitments and Delivery”, organized by the Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) in Dhaka.
 
Mr. Shipar noted that most of the clothing factories are still operating in shared buildings and the establishment of the industrial park would ensure the best compliances at the factories.
 
Participants in the discussion on the follow-up of Rana Plaza Tragedy observed that the implementation of post-Rana Plaza deliverables was rather mixed although progress has been made in some areas, according to a CPD statement.
 
The dialogue was the sixth follow-up activity of “Post-Rana Plaza Monitoring” a civil society initiative led by CPD, in partnership with a number of civil society organisations and individuals in Bangladesh.
 
Speakers at the discussion stressed on the need for proper implementation of the pledges by the three parties—the Bangladesh Government, Accord and Alliance.
 
Professor Rehman Sobhan, chairman CPD, said four million people of the garment sector are central to Bangladesh’s economic system. The RMG sector is part of the global process so the international stakeholders also have responsibility, he added.
 
Mr. Shipar said many initiatives have been taken after the Rana Plaza incident and the Government has plan to explain its activities on the anniversary of the incident where all the stakeholders, including representatives of the EU, the US, the ILO, and donor agencies are expected to attend.
