The second Dhaka Apparel Summit 2017 will be held on February 25 in Bangladesh with the objective of opening dialogue on framing strategies to secure a more sustainable apparel supply chain from local and global perspectives. The summit on textile and apparel industry will feature three panel discussion sessions offering an opportunity for exchanging ideas.

Prime Minister of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina, will inaugurate the daylong event organised by Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) in collaboration with Bangladesh Apparel Exchange (BAE).

"The Dhaka Apparel Summit is a prime event on textile and apparel industry in Bangladesh that brings together some of the world's leading experts in their respective fields to share their experiences and visionary thoughts on issues pertaining to the apparel industry and ways in which the business can realise sustainable growth well into the 21st century," said Md. Siddiqur Rahman, president, BGMEA.

Sessions will be held on topics like 'Business Policy & Environment: Towards a Better Bangladesh', 'Collaborative and Responsible Sourcing For Sustainable Growth' and 'Bangladesh Apparel Industry: Transformation and the Road Ahead'.

Discussions to be held at the event will shed light on different timely issues, including Bangladesh RMG industry, which is at the dawn of a new era in its development, with unprecedented safety standards being adopted and great strides being taken towards achieving environmental and sustainable targets. There is a strong desire to continue the growth of the industry with these principals in mind, informed a BGMEA press release.

The summit will offer a forum to express and discuss visionary views with a broad spectrum of proposals to further improve the industry’s environmental and sustainable credentials. It also aims to bring to light various methods to achieve these goals.

The seminars will be attended by representatives of the government, international organisations, economists, brand representatives, development organisations, employers, workers’ representatives, civil society members, academics and more. (KD)
