Mozena: Bangladesh can be top garment exporter

Bangladesh can become economically prosperous like Malaysia through garment export, US Ambassador to Bangladesh Dan W Mozena has said.

He made this remark while visiting a garment factory in Rajbari under Sreepur of Gazipur district on Saturday.

US Aid Director Janina Jaruzelski accompanied him during his visit to the district.

Mozena said the Obama administration has suspended GSP privileges for Bangladesh as part of its long process.

It has given the government of Bangladesh to take some action plans for implementations for the restoration of the privileges.

America, the European Union and Bangladesh have adopted the action plan on July 8 last year in Geneva.

Bangladesh committed to implement the strategy to get GSP back. Meanwhile, in this regard, some developments have been made, Mozena said.

If the action plan or roadmap is fully implemented, Bangladesh will become a widely acceptable brand in the world in garment sector, hoped the US envoy.

Mozena said Bangladesh is currently passing through a crisis moment, the country can overcome it.

Through the implementation of the roadmap, Bangladesh garment industry could be turned into number one, or it may fail if it is not implemented, said the US diplomat.

He said if the action plan is not implemented, the disasters like Rana Plaza or Tajrin garments can happen again.

He, however, said: “I do not believe it will happen again.”

“And for this, my government, my mission, and I personally will do as far as possible.”

“We're talking to consumers, working with Bangladesh government along with ILO and other stakeholders,” Mozena said.

In June, last year, US President Barack Obama suspended the GSP facility for Bangladesh as it had not been meeting the conditions required for the privileges.
