BGMEA urges political leaders to find way out

 

Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) on Thursday urged the political leaders to sit for discussing a way out from the recent political unrest.

Talking to reporters after a meeting at the Bangladesh Bank, newly elected president of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) Atiqul Islam said that recent hartals (general strikes) have almost paralyzed the export-import activities in the country.

“The political leaders must address its impact on the RMG sector,” he said.

The BGMEA president said he is going to make courtesy calls on both Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Opposition Leader Khaleda Zia and urge them on behalf of the apparel and textile exporters to take steps for restoring normalcy and peace in the country.
