Garment study on cards: PM

The government has moved to conduct a study on the garment sector, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said in parliament yesterday.
She said a renowned local organisation will conduct the study to know about the number of garment factories on an area basis, total workers, and their problems and possible solutions.
The study will help the government and other stakeholders to prepare a to-do list to bring global standards to the sector.
“Coordinated activities are a must to consolidate the sector.” She said she formed a 10-member cabinet committee led by the labour minister for the sector.
Hasina said her government has already taken steps to establish a garment palli -- a specialised zone for garment factories -- and dormitories for workers.
She said the government for the first time has formed a 'national industries, health and security council'. And formulation of a national policy is underway, she added.
