Garment manufacturers call for fair pricing

April 16, 2018

Bangladesh garment manufacturers have called for a “commensurate adjustment” in pricing and sourcing garments from developing countries like Bangladesh. They said it (justified price) is increasingly crucial and needs to be looked at forthright by the global brands and retailers. The garment manufacturers made the call at a conference on ‘Five years after Rana Plaza: Towards a responsible garment supply chain,’ organized at The Hague by the TMC Asser Institute, a leading think-tank in the Netherlands on Friday. The daylong seminar brought together leading figures and representatives from Accord, International Apparel Foundation, Dutch government, academics and researchers, civil society, said the Bangladesh Embassy in The Hague on Saturday. Bangladesh Ambassador to the Netherlands Sheikh Mohammed Belal, Bangladesh High Commissioner to Sri Lank M Riaz Hamidullah, and BGMEA President M Siddiqur Rahman and Vice-President (Finance) Mohammed Nasir also spoke at the program.
