Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) has requested Singapore port authority for faster, seamless transshipment of Bangladeshi RMG goods.

The request was made when a BGMEA delegation, led by President Faruque Hassan, held a meeting with Alfred Sim, vice president, and Lim Wei Chiang, assistant vice president, Group Business Development at PSA International Ltd, reports BSS.

Asif Ashraf, director, BGMEA; Shams Mahmud, chair of BGMEA Standing Committee on Foreign Mission Cell; Azfar Hassan, director of Giant Group; and Sanjay Kumar Naha, director of Rose Intimates Ltd were present at the meeting held in Singapore on Tuesday.

The meeting was also attended by Luthfun Nahar Shipu, commercial counsellor at Bangladesh High Commission in Singapore, said a press release.

Discussions during the meeting revolved around mutual interests, with a primary focus on the transshipment process of Bangladeshi export goods through the Singapore port.
