They had discussions about issues related to the readymade garment industry in Bangladesh, including its progress in the areas of workplace safety, environmental sustainability and wellbeing of workers

Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) urged the Danish Ambassador to share positive stories of the apparel industries of Bangladesh with the Danish brands and consumers.

Faruque Hassan, president of the BGMEA urged the Ambassador of Denmark to Bangladesh Winnie Estrup Petersen during a courtesy call at the BGMEA office on Sunday.

BGMEA Vice President Shahidullah Azim, Vice President Miran Ali, Soren Asbjorn Albertsen, Sector Counsellor, and Ali Mushtaq Butt, Commercial Counsellor at the Danish Embassy were also present on the occasion.

They had discussions about issues related to the readymade garment industry in Bangladesh, including its progress in the areas of workplace safety, environmental sustainability and wellbeing of workers.

They also talked about scopes of further collaboration and cooperation from Denmark, especially in enhancing productivity and facilitating more use of energy-efficient technologies in the garment industry of Bangladesh.

Faruque Hassan sought the support of the Government of Denmark in securing the continuation of duty-benefit for Bangladesh in the European Union for 12 years after the graduation from LDC in 2026 to ensure a smoother transition. 

Denmark is a member country of the European Union which provides duty-free market access to Bangladesh as an LDC under its EBA program. 

Faruque Hassan requested Ambassador Winnie Estrup to share the positive development and stories about the RMG industry she witnessed during her stay in Dhaka with both brands and consumers.

He also called on the envoy to request Danish brands and retailers to be more rational in pricing as nobody can justify the lower prices to produce socially fair goods.
