Bangladesh has earned global accolades for making remarkable strides in the areas of workplace safety, environmental sustainability, and workers’ rights and welfare in the garment sector, said Faruque Hassan, president of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA).
Bangladesh’s garment industry has continued its all-out efforts to grow in a manner that is sustainable and leaves a positive impact on the planet and the people, Hassan said.
The BGMEA president was sharing his views at a webinar organized by International Trade Center (ITC).
He said the BGMEA has made strides towards making the RMG industry of Bangladesh one of the safest and greenest industries in the world.
