More sourced from Bangladesh due to remediation: Alliance
Global retailers and brands have raised their apparel import from compliant factories in Bangladesh as the country’s readymade garments (RMG) sector has become one of the safest places for workers following the remediation work of the Alliance, the Accord and a national action plan, according to Sean Cady, vice president of US apparel company VF Corporation.

“We are proud of Brand Bangladesh. Made in Bangladesh has a strong recognition in the world,” Cady, a board member of Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety, a platform of North American buyers and retailers, told a press conference in Dhaka recently.

He said the country’s RMG sector was strong, business was coming and more business was coming to equipped factories.

According to Alliance executive director Jim Moriarty, the platform would not continue after its timeframe, which ends in December, but were negotiating with the government and factory owners to set up an independent body to monitor the post-remediation safety standard in the RMG units.

The confidential worker helpline — Amader Kotha — established by the Alliance will turn this month into an independent initiative and will can expand its services beyond the Alliance-affiliated factories, he said. (DS)
