The workshop started with a welcome address given by Ms. Munira Rahman, National Coordinator, UNIDO- Better Work in Textiles and Garment (BWTG)”.  In the welcome speech, John Smith, International Coordinator, UNIDO-BWTG said `the National Performance Cluster will play an important role for the competitiveness of the Bangladesh Apparel and Textile Industry.
