RMG accessories testing lab comes up in Bangladesh
Dec '16
In a bid to improve the quality of garment accessories manufactured in the country, Bangladesh Garments Accessories and Packaging Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGAPMEA) has launched a testing laboratory. This will help in attracting global buyers, said Md Mosharraf Hossain Bhuiyan, senior secretary of Bangladesh ministry of industries.

Bangladesh is the second largest exporter of RMG. The testing lab will help manufacturers improve the product quality and meet the demand of global consumers, said Bhuiyan during the inauguration of the lab in Tongi industrial area.

Financial assistance from EU will help in production of top quality accessory items, which will improve selling across the world, he said, according to a Bangladesh leading daily.

Funded by EU in association with Bangladesh ministry of industries, the testing lab has been set up under the Integrated Support to Poverty and Inequality Reduction through Enterprise Development (INSPIRED) project.

INSPIRED programme aims to reduce poverty by supporting the development of Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) in the country. The project also promotes enhanced competitiveness and sustainable pro-poor growth of SMEs in selected sub-sectors of the economy.

The garment accessories and packaging industry contributed $6.12 billion to apparel exports in the last fiscal, recording a growth of 9.28 per cent compared to $5.6 billion in the previous year. The accessories used in readymade garments are produced by about 1,400 manufacturers in Bangladesh, who collectively employ around 3 lakh people. (RR)
