The owners want to keep the garment factories open on July 23 despite strict restrictions

The Bangladesh Made Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) has demanded that garment factories remain open despite strict restrictions that began on July 23 after Eid-ul-Azha.

The BGMEA leaders made this demand while meeting Cabinet Secretary Khandaker Anwarul Islam at the Secretariat on Thursday.

BGMEA leaders said the demand was made so that the country's large export earning sector could continue to produce and fulfill commitments made by international buyers.

The Garment Industry has just started working on the orders that came back due to Corona. Work is now underway for the winter ahead. If the garment factories are closed for two weeks, the industry will go bankrupt. Buyers have slowed orders after hearing that garment factories will be closed. So we demand that the garment industry should remain open at this time even if there are restrictions on everything.

Four billion dollars worth of orders were canceled last year during the Corona crisis. The orders are slowly coming back. But since the restrictions were announced, buyers have slowed down and stopped orders.

I have requested to the Cabinet Secretary. I hope they will consider. Failure to ship will result in order cancellation. I want that cooperation so that I can do the shipment.

Cabinet Secretary Khandaker Anwarul Islam told the media that I have received their letter to the Prime Minister. The letter will reach the Prime Minister as soon as possible. Whether or not industries will remain open during the lockdown depends on the decision of the Hon'ble Prime Minister. The decision he will give will be communicated to you later.
