BGMEA explains stand over factory closure

Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) explained their position on closing or remain open of factory units, said Mohammad Abdur Razzak, secretary of BGMEA in a press release yesterday.

Export-oriented industrial units which are in the process of international procurement and are producing essential products to prevent coronavirus such as PPE, masks, hand washes pharmaceuticals are allowed to remain open their factories by ensuring necessary safety of the workers, said Razzak.

In this regard, BGMEA will provide all kinds of cooperation. BGMEA urged the cooperation of all of its members.

Earlier, on March 26, BGMEA urged its members to close garment factories till April 4 amid deteriorating coronavirus situation in the country.  In an open letter to its members, BGMEA President Rubana Huq urged garments owners to close their factories to avoid the risk of coronavirus spread and continuous cancellation of orders from foreign buyers.
