Bangladesh Garments manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) president Rubana Huq recently urged German minister for economic cooperation and development Gerd Müller to immediately ask all German brands sourcing from Bangladesh not to cancel or hold shipments. Bangladesh firms are facing existential problems as workers need to be paid, she said in a letter.

She informed the German Minister that BGMEA has told German brands that they can pay 90 days later but they still need to accept previously ordered goods, according to a BGMEA press release.

"In the face of cancellation, it is only evident that we will fail to pay our workers which will create serious social unrest and I am certain the no German brands would like to see that happen in their account," the letter read.

"Without this support, we will have a disastrous impact on our labour force and our businesses," Huq added in her letter.
