Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi yesterday urged the International Labour Organization (ILO) to play a role in raising the price of Bangladesh of readymade garment (RMG) items.

He made the comment while exchanging views with ILO Country Director Tuomo Poutiainen at his secretariat office, reports BSS.

He said owners had to spend huge amount of money for modernization and safety work in RMG factories after the Rana Plaza incident, and implementation of new wages also pushed the expenditure further, but “buyers of RMG items have not increased the price in accordance with it”.

Tipu said Bangladesh’s RMG sector has reached this stage after overcoming adverse situations and the government is working sincerely to ensure reasonable wages to labourers.

Expressing his gratitude to ILO, he said Bangladesh has had ILO’s cooperation and will continue to work in future with the organization.

The ILO country director said that Bangladesh’s labour industry has attained visible development and hoped this progress will continue in future.
