Speed up Garment Village: B'desh PM

Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said the government had always extended its support to the RMG sector and expected garment factory owners to help complete the work on Garment Village at Gazaria in Munshiganj for further development of the country's RMG industry.

"Our government has allocated a land for setting up the Garment Village at Gazaria...necessary work is underway to develop the village and it could be completed speedily if you take some initiatives and spend some money. But, you're close-fisted and try to save money and that's the problem," she told a delegation of newly elected leaders of the Bangladesh Manufacturers and Garment Exporters Association (BGMEA) led by its President Md Siddiqur Rahman.

Sheikh Hasina said all facilities are being ensured from gas supply to communications to establish the Garment Village. "There'll be no problem at the village if you start spending money and relocating your factories there," the UNB news agency reported.

“Businessmen will have to come forward to solve problems on their own,” she said stressing the importance of reducing dependence on the government.

The Prime Minister also urged private banks to take necessary measures to bring down high lending rates and said the nationalised banks are providing loans at a relatively lower rate of interest.

She stressed the need for ensuring welfare of the workers by the industry owners as they are contributing towards making country's economy stronger.

Assuring full support of her government to the textile industry, the Prime Minister called on readymade garment manufacturers and exporters to explore newer markets across the world to boost to the country's exports and strengthen the national economy.

The Awami League government does not want to do business and is working to enhance and promote business activities to put the national economy a stronger footing, Shiekh Hasina told the delegation.

She said her government wanted to play the role of a regulator and facilitator and it does not want to do business, she told the delegation and stressed upon businessmen to reduce their dependence on government. (SH)
