Bangladesh Garment Buying House Association Elects New Board for 2024-2026

Dhaka, Bangladesh – In a landmark election held at Dhaka’s Baridhara DOHS Convention Center, the Bangladesh Garment Buying House Association (BGBA) ushered in a new era with a freshly elected board for the 2024-2026 term. The self-disciplining, nonprofit organization, crucial to the Bangladesh Readymade Garment (RMG) sector, witnessed a dynamic competition between two major panels – ‘Buyer’s Council’ and ‘Progressive Alliance.’

The ‘Buyer’s Council,’ spearheaded by the esteemed ex-president Kazi Iftekhar Hossain, clinched a resounding victory with 12 out of the 15 board members elected. Notably, Hossain will resume his position as President, marking a continued commitment to the association’s progress.

In the election, a total of 570 votes were cast out of 600, and the election body deemed 563 votes as valid.

The 12 elected board members from the Buyer’s Council are as follows (with the exception of ballot numbers 3, 6, and 16):

  1. Kazi Iftequer Hossain, CEO, Total Apparels (Panel Leader)
  2. Md Aminul Islam, CEO, City Apparel Tex Co.
  3. Kyaw Sein Thay Dolly, Managing Director, Cloths R Us Ltd
  4. Mofazzal Hossen Pavel, Managing Director, Dongyi Sourcing Ltd.
  5. Mohammed Morshed Alam, Director, Kleider Fashion Ltd.
  6. Emdad Ul Haque Miazi, Partner, Kiwi Fashion
  7. Abdul Mannan, Proprietor, Mam Bangladesh
  8. Md. Rakibul Hasan, Managing Director, Vero Style Ltd.
  9. Wahidur Rahman, Managing Director, Turin Apparels Ltd.
  10. Shagufhta Newaz, Chairman, N2N Sourcing Ltd.
  11. Fazlul Haque, Managing Director, Nelima Fashion Ltd.
  12. Zakir Hossain, Chairman, Tex Solution Consulting Bangladesh Ltd.

And the elected board members from Progressive Alliance are:

  1. Md Abdul Hamid Pintu, Proprietor, KFS Fashion
  2. A K M Saifur Rahman, Managing Partner, Wikitex BD
  3. Md Roman Mia, Proprietor, One Export & Import

The Buyer’s Council’s elected board members, including industry stalwarts like Md Aminul Islam, Shagufhta Newaz, and Zakir Hossain, are set to inject renewed energy into the BGBA. Meanwhile, the ‘Progressive Alliance,’ led by the dynamic Md Abdul Hamid Pintu, secured three positions, promising a constructive contribution to the association’s goals.

This election, held after a 12-year hiatus at the members’ insistence, signals a rejuvenation of the BGBA’s leadership. The association, approved by the Director of Trade Organizations and an active member of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI), plays a pivotal role in safeguarding the interests of buying houses in the country.

The newly elected board members expressed their commitment to fostering collaboration with the government for policy support, aiming to fortify the industry. The grand inauguration ceremony for the incoming board promises a vibrant tenure ahead, focused on fulfilling the hopes and aspirations of the association’s 1300+ members.

As the BGBA embarks on this new chapter, it is poised to build on its legacy, acting as a robust protection for buying houses in the RMG sector. The association’s dedication to strengthening the bonds between its members reflects the desperate and earnest efforts of enterprising individuals within the BGBA community. The stage is set for a transformative period, with the BGBA geared towards innovation, collaboration, and industry elevation in the coming years.”
