Progress made in RMG sector but more needs to be done: Bernicat

Thereport24.com Desk:

US Ambassador in Dhaka Marcia Bernicat on Friday said there has been significant progress in Bangladesh’s readymade garment sector’s capacity building over the last two and half years but some more tasks need to be done.

“Specially, there has been much progress in terms of workers’ safety, but more needs to be done,” she said while addressing a function at Signboard area arranged by East West Industrial Park.

The US diplomat said her country and the international community are witnessing that workers’ rights are respected here and they are allowed to assemble together.

Bernicat said the international buyers know how a worker is working and the efforts will be successful once owners and workers will work jointly. “Change is never an easy job.”

East West Industrial Park Managing Director M Harun-ur-Rashid, BGMEA Director Mahmud Hasan Khan Babul and Solidarity Centre Director also spoke on the occassion.

Some 113 talented students were given stipend at the function.
