TIB's thumbs up to Bangladeshi garment sector

In a big boost to the Bangladeshi garment sector, Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) has expressed satisfaction over the safety measures in the ready-made garment industry taken by the government after the Rana Plaza collapse.

“The progress in safety that Bangladesh had made in the garment sector over the last three years deserves national and international recognition,” said TIB Executive Director Iftekharuzzaman at a press conference at his office in Dhaka on Thursday.

The global anti-graft watchdog shared its findings of a study titled “Good governance in garment sector: progress, challenges and way forward”.

The TIB has been conducting studies on governance in the apparel sector for the last three years after the Rana Plaza building collapse in April 2013.

After the Rana Plaza disaster, the government and the international stakeholders took 102 initiatives in the RMG sector to improve safety in workplace and labour rights.

The TIB conducted a research on 68 of those initiatives last year and found that six of them had been implemented fully while the progress in 39 was satisfactory, 10 were in slow implementation and the progress of 13 initiatives was stagnant.

“Of the total initiatives, Bangladesh achieved a remarkable progress in 77 per cent of initiatives while the progress is slow for the remaining 23 per cent for establishing governance in garment sector,” Iftekharuzzaman said.

The TIB also praised factory owners for the achievement of 44 per cent repair works so far after the inspection by three agencies including Accord, Alliance and the one by the government.

But the TIB Executive Director warned against complacency. “However, the government and the private sector entrepreneurs have to keep up the safety progress and complete the remaining initiatives for making the sector sustainable,” Iftekharuzzaman said. (SH)
