BGMEA bats for industrial zones in Dhaka, Chittagong
03
Feb '17
In order to boost manufacturing of apparels in the country, Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) has suggested the government to establish two new industrial zones near Dhaka and Chittagong. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has already announced that her government will set up 100 such industrial zones in Bangladesh.

The proposed 100 industrial zones are likely to require some time for establishment and coming into operation, said Md Siddiqur Rahman, president of BGMEA at a press conference held recently. He said that this is the reason why the association is requesting the government to set up the zones for the garment sector on a priority basis.

In case it is not possible to establish the industrial zones, Rahman asked for limited governmental land to help relocate RMG factories from their current locations. Besides helping the manufacturing units, this move is also likely to aid the banks to overcome crisis, according to the president.

He also urged the people of the country as well as the government to save the RMG industry and said that their cooperation is needed to achieve the target of earning $50 billion in apparel exports by 2021. (KD)
