Bangla RMG sector slams aviation dept for input delays

Riled by delayed delivery of imported raw materials, the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association President Siddiqur Rahman, has slammed the country’s Civil Aviation Authority, the flag carrier Biman and Customs Intelligence for what it called their ‘non-cooperation’.

Rahman made the allegations at a media briefing at his office in Dhaka.

He alleged that readymade garment (RMG) manufactures have to import raw materials on an emergency basis spending a lot of money, but they do not get their products in time.

He cited lack of cooperation among the three organisations.

They should take a decision how to enable delivery of goods in due time as the importers have to suffer huge losses in the wake of delayed shipment, the BGMEA boss said.

“Biman is supposed to deliver products within 24 hours but we did not get it even after a couple of weeks.”

He alleged that CAAB does not allow BGMEA representatives to identify imported goods while it fails to make the delivery of them in time.

But Group Captain Zakir Hassan, Director, Shahjalal International Airport, said they prevent outsiders from entering for security reasons.

A good number of consignments remain stuck in the bay area of the airport as the clearing agents are not let in certain areas for customs clearance, said Sheikh Md Farid, president of Customs Clearing and Forwarding Agents Association in Dhaka.

Bangladesh’s trade with Australia will also be disrupted by the recent ban on air shipments to the continent, exporters said.

Australia has recently imposed the ban on air shipments from Bangladesh, Syria, Egypt, Yemen and Somalia on security grounds.

Rahman also urged the government to take necessary measures to resolve the issues immediately before they hurt the country’s export. (SH)
