Allow export-oriented factories to run during lockdown: Bangladesh Textile Mills Association

Bangladesh Textile Mills Association (BTMA) Director Syed Nurul Islam today urged the government to allow the factories in textiles, garments and accessories sectors to run strictly maintaining health guidelines during the lockdown.

Islam, also a director of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI), said keeping factories operational during lockdown will help the export-oriented sector of the country continue their struggle to sustain amid the Covid-19 situation.

Otherwise, he said, the government's stimulus package or support will go in vain.

The chairman and CEO of Well Group made the request in a message sent to media today.

He said if the factories are allowed to operate with strict health guidelines in place, over five million of male and female workers will be able to survive.

The government has decided to put the country under a strict lockdown for a week from April 14 amid a growing number of Covid-19 cases.
