Chairperson of the European Union’s Committee on Foreign Affairs (AFET) has urged European companies sourcing readymade garments (RMG) from Bangladesh to promote acceptable standards in the manufacturing units.
Mr. Brok had an exchange of views with Bangladesh Foreign Minister Dipu Moni in Brussels last week.
During the meeting, AFET Chairperson said, “He wished to see the Government of Bangladesh implementing measures in the readymade garment industry, which would ensure concrete improvements in workplace safety and labour rights.”
A statement on the European Parliament website said AFET Chair also reminded that European companies purchasing RMG from Bangladesh must share the responsibilities.
The Chair also urged these companies to exercise control and promote acceptable standards in the factories.
