Exporters of Tailor Made Garments and Stocklots

Government urged to create skilled workforce to sustain the development of the Readymade Garment sector

The readymade garment sector of Bangladesh is facing a dire shortage of skilled workforce and the outgoing president of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) has urged the government to take measures to sustain the development of the sector. Meanwhile the president of the BGMEA, Abdus Salam Murshedy advised that there is no other substitute than to create an adequate workforce.

Presently a quarter of the manufacturing capacity remains unutilized due to a shortage of skilled personnel and of the  three and half million workforce in the sector, 17,000 are from overseas.

Murshedy also recommended setting up a separate ministry for the garment sector and to establish embassies in new importing countries. He added that the garment sector is facing enormous difficulties in some emerging markets such as Chile and Mexico due to the absence of embassies in those countries. He advised that establishing embassies would pave the way for expanded trade in those countries and could attract investment, too. Finally Murshedy touched upon the benefits that could be obtained if the RMG sector could tap into the huge $28 billion dollar Indian market, which would make it the third largest market for Bangladesh after Europe and the USA.
