Bangladeshi government has split the country's readymade apparel industries in to three zones and has also deputed Member of Parliaments (MPs) to deal with unrest in these zones.

The Labour Minister, made the announcement after a two-hour discussion with the policy makers and parliament members at the ministry, early this week. The three newly formed RMG zones are Gazipur, Naryanganj and Ashulia.

MPs with their committees within their zones, will take the necessary steps to reopen shut firms after due discussions with apparel firm owners, workforce and law-enforcement agencies.

During the aforesaid meeting at the ministry, varied ways of solving the garment sector's problems were discussed. The three committees were also urged to take all the vital measures to safeguard the industries. All possible attempts will be made by the committees to revive the shut firms.

Members of apparel firm owners, workforce and law-enforcement agencies have been urged to work in accordance with the law. As of now, the wage board is calculating the worker's demand for a monthly minimum salary of Tk 5,000. A report will be submitted in this respect by the end of next month.

Any unlawful activity will not be accepted and stringent action will also be taken against those breaking the law. Activities of unregistered labour set ups will also come to a standstill, was duly discussed in the meeting.
