A delegation from the Bangladesh Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), during a recent trip to Canada, urged authorities and lawmakers in that country to extend duty free access provision to Bangladeshi readymade garment (RMG) products after the nation graduates from the least developed country (LDC) status in December 2023.

The delegation, led by BGMEA vice president Mohammad Moshiul Azam Shajal, was accompanied by Bangladeshi commerce minister Tipu Munshi. It met Canadian minister of border security Bill Blair and discussed bilateral issues of trade, accessible visa for Bangladeshi businessmen and the duty free extension, according to a BGMEA press release.
