Bangla PM seeks higher prices for RMG exports

Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has urged the foreign buyers to raise the price of garment products, saying that this money would be spent for further welfare of the country's four million readymade garment (RMG) workers, the Bangladesh media has reported.

The Prime Minister came up with the request when Dutch Ambassador to Bangladesh Gerben de Jong paid a farewell visit to her. Bangladesh is one of the world's largest RMG exporters.

Spelling out her government's steps for the welfare of the RMG workers, Sheikh Hasina said her administration has increased the wages of the RMG workers over 200 per cent in the last six years.

"Besides, we are setting up dormitories for the female garment workers," she said.

While talking about concern of different countries about Bangladesh's garment sector issue, the Prime Minister lauded the role of the Netherlands in this regard. "The Netherlands never put pressure on Bangladesh in this regard," she said.

Expressing satisfaction over the existing friendly ties between Bangladesh and the Netherlands, the Prime Minister said the ties have reached to a new dimension during the tenure of the Dutch ambassador.

The Dutch envoy highly appreciated Bangladesh's tremendous development in RMG sector, saying that Bangladesh's target of earning $50 billion from the sector by 2021 is possible. (SH)
