BGMEA requests govt to register apparel buying houses

The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) recently requested the government to offer registration to its associate member buying houses. The association wrote a letter in this regard to the textiles and jute ministry, which, in an April 1 circular, made it mandatory for apparel buying houses to get registered with the department of textiles.

BGMEA has been giving certificate to buying houses as its associate members. There are 1,500 buying houses at present registered as BGMEA associate members.

In August 2019, BGMEA had sent a letter to the director general of the department of textiles requesting registration for the buying houses who are its associate members, but the department did not oblige. Rather, buying houses were asked to receive membership from their respective associations.

The department has blamed the Bangladesh Garment Buying House Association for hampering the interests of 1,500 apparel buying houses, a Bangladesh newspaper reported quoting a BGMEA source.

BGMEA is the sole garment sourcing association in Bangladesh that is known by the international renowned firms, he added.

The prices of readymade garment items are being reduced day by day due to uncontrolled buying houses and arbitrarily giving registration by the associations concerned, BGMEA said.
