BGMEA to reopen all Ashulia apparel and textile units

Jun '10
Crumbling under pressure by the government, the garment trade association, Bangladesh Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), has decided to reopen all firms at Ashulia in Gazipur and for this they have approached the respective apparel firm owners.

Abdus Salam Murshedy, President of BGMEA, said that, the aforesaid decision has been taken following security assurance from the government. This will help them to continue with manufacturing of textile goods.

BGMEA has urged the factory owners to take necessary steps to reopen their garment and textile units located in Ashulia, the hub of garment and textile entities.

Meanwhile, BGMEA chief has also handed support to the government to prepare a list of labour leaders who were held responsible for labour trouble, within the next three days and imprison those who are charged as guilty.

However, industrial experts believe that ruling party leaders and officials pressurized BGMEA members to reopen firms, assuring them security.

Apparently MP Murad Jong, told BGMEA that, he was ready to take up responsibility and had also ordered the owners of RMG entities to remain present outside their firms in the wee hours and function as normal.

But, BGMEA's immediate decision on urging RMG entities to reopen factories came about when the government issued warning that, it was not going to put up with any trouble in the multi-billion-dollar-apparel industry and if required, would deal with adverse situations with a tough stance.

Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Labour and Employment Minister, averred that, violation of law or any other kind of trouble within the clothing or any other industry will not be accepted by the government and stringent actions will be taken if needed.
