The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) will start shifting from its Hatirjheel premises to a new complex at Uttara in Dhaka from April 11 after a long court battle. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the complex recently. Construction of the new complex began in October 2017 after a court ordered demolition of the current one.

The first six floors have been constructed of the 15-storey building having two basements. The construction cost along with the land price will reach Tk 250 crore, according to Bangla media reports.

The BGMEA has been in the Hatirjheel building for 13 years, said BGMEA president Siddiqur Rahman, adding that no compensation was paid to those who had bought space in the building as it was not constructed on a legal site.

Most of the offices of 40 companies housed in the Hatirjheel building have already moved to new places. (DS)
