Bangladesh textile garments industry has been suffering a lot during this pandemic situation. It has largely affected order decrease due to COVID-19 outbreak. Last year the industry survived with some good initiatives and government support. As the country is largely affected by the second wave of COVID now it’s really a very hard time for this industry. Recently the BGMEA election has been completed and new BGMEA committee with the leadership of Mr. Faruque Hassan has taken charge for 2021-2023. Textile Focus has been talking with BGMEA members’ company owners regarding the expectation from the new board. Syed Rezaul Hossain Kazi, Managing Director, Aptech Group expressed wish to the new BGMEA board.
In this hard time, I think the newly elected committee has the most experienced leader so that they will contribute more in the development of the RMG sector. Besides seeing many young leaders hope that they will work together.
