Bangladesh extends RMG factory remediation deadline to Dec
The Bangladesh Government last week extended the deadline for completing remediation works in the readymade garment (RMG) factories, which are being inspected under the joint initiative of the government and the International Labour Organisation (ILO), from April 30 to December this year after almost all the factories missed the deadline.

The country is under pressure in national and international forums due the slow progress in fixing safety faults in the factories, state minister for labour Mohammadd Mujibul Haque said in a meeting with the representatives of the garment factories that missed the deadline.

The minister cautioned the representatives that strict action will be taken against those who fail to meet the new deadline, according to Bangladesh media reports.

Lack of fund is the main challenge for remediation, according to factory representatives, many of whom said they could not start remediation work as their factories were housed in rented buildings, whose owners were not willing to fix the problems. (DS)
