Australia, ILO work to raise Bangla working conditions
Australia and the International Labour Organisation (ILO) have strengthened their partnership to improve working conditions, advance women's economic potential and boost the competitiveness of Bangladesh's readymade garment (RMG) sector. The partnership has been strengthened by the re-commitment of funds for the ‘Better Work Bangladesh’ (BWB) programme.

A joint International Finance Corporation-ILO programme, BWB is being used as part of Australia’s ongoing partnership with ILO to empower women and boost garment industry in Bangladesh, according to a joint media statement issued recently by both sides.

Australia’s ongoing support for the BWB programme drives important changes to workplace safety in the garment industry, Bangla media report.

The Australian government has been supporting BWB since 2016 and the programme this month reached 485,708 workers in 210 factories who work with 22 international brands, according to Australian High Commission in Dhaka. (DS)
