Fringes of Dhaka to soon witness RMG industrial park

The Industries Ministry is intending to set up an apparel industrial park in the fringes of Dhaka, to serve as a single stop service to Readymade Garment (RMG) industrialists, informed officials from the industry.

A project under the name, 'Garments Industrial Park' has been outlined to institute the proposed park on a 300 acres plot at Bausia under Gajaria upazila of Munshiganj district.

The project with an approximated cost of Tk 4.38 billion is the first endeavour by government in the direction of setting up a RMG hub, mainly focusing on developing and modernizing the budding sector. Bangladesh Small and Cottage Industries Corporation (BSCIC), managed by the Ministry, have been appointed to execute the project from next year.

Khandaker Nuruzzaman, Joint Chief (Planning) of the Ministry said that, the proposed RMG industrial park will be a prototype that would help draw overseas customers. The main aim underlying the project is to relocate the existing garment industrial units from Dhaka, Gazipur and Narayanganj, so as to provide a boost to the garment industry.

The projected park will embrace within itself several infrastructural facilities like appealing industrial plots, internal roads, drainage facilities, incessant provision of services, central effluent treatment plant (CETP), waste dumping yard and fire fighting equipments.

RMG industry that brings in around 80 percent of the country's foreign exchange is looked upon as the biggest earner of foreign currency in the country. The most labour-intensive industry on an average, serves as a source of employment for around 2.5 million workers.
