BGMEA wants easy customs rules
The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) today emphasised the need for simplifying customs-related procedures and removing all obstacles to facilitate faster and smoother services for the RMG sector.
In a highly competitive global market, Bangladesh must reduce lead times, which is a critical factor for maintaining competitiveness within the fashion industry, BGMEA President Faruque Hassan said.
He also highlighted the challenges the RMG industry is currently facing like a slowdown in orders because of the Russia-Ukraine war.
He highlighted the industry's need for government support and cooperation to navigate these challenging times and ensure its sustainable growth.
They urged the customs authorities to take prompt action in addressing these issues and streamlining services for the RMG industry.
In response, the customs commissioner acknowledged the significant contribution of the RMG industry to the socioeconomic development of Bangladesh, the BGMEA said in a statement.
