The garment industry in Corona is going through a transition period. The second wave of corona has once again pushed the readymade garment industry to disaster.
The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) has sought policy assistance from the central bank to keep the garment industry afloat in the face of hostile influences.
The BGMEA announced the cooperation in a message on Monday (June 7th). Earlier on Sunday (June 6), a BGMEA delegation led by BGMEA President Faruk Hasan met Governor Fazle Kabir at Bangladesh Bank Bhaban and made some proposals.
The BGMEA delegation included, among others, senior vice president SM Mannan (Kachi), vice president. Shahidullah Azim, Vice President (Finance) Khandaker Rafiqul Islam, Vice President Rakibul Alam Chowdhury, Director Asif Ashraf, Director. Khasru Chowdhury and former director. Munir Hossain. Deputy Governor of Bangladesh Bank Ahmed Jamal, Kazi Chaidur Rahman and others were present at the time.
During the discussion, BGMEA President Farooq Hasan said the garment industry was going through a crisis due to the Corona epidemic. In this situation, the entrepreneurs of the garment industry are trying their best to keep the wheel of the economy moving and to keep the adverse situation normal. Entrepreneurs think that in the current situation, if Bangladesh Bank takes initiative to facilitate the issues related to the garment industry, it will help the industry to turn around.
