International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) Senior Project Manager Golda Myra Roma paid a courtesy visit to BGMEA President Faruque Hassan and discussed the current situation of Bangladesh’s RMG industry and future priorities of the sector for sustainable growth.
The meeting was held on Tuesday at BGMEA Complex. ICMPD Country Coordinator for Bangladesh Mohammad Ikram Hossain was also present on the occasion.
During the discussion, Faruque Hassan gave an overview of how the garment industry has been making significant contributions to the economic development of Bangladesh, especially through export earnings and employment generation for millions of people in the country.
They discussed how Bangladeshi migrant workers, who return home from abroad for various reasons, could be employed in the RMG industry as they often struggle to find employment after coming back to Bangladesh.
They also talked about how these returning migrant workers could be sent abroad by making them skilled with the necessary training.
Faruque Hassan extended an invitation to ICMPD to the Made in Bangladesh Week which will be organised by BGMEA on November 12-18 this year to showcase the prospects and strengths of the RMG industry and brand Bangladesh.
