A washing facility will be set up in Bangladesh to protect and preserve its place in the garment manufacturing world, said Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) President Faruque Hassan.

He made the announcement while speaking as the main guest at the Bangladesh Garments Washing Technologist Foundation (BGWTF) Annual General Meeting held at the Priyanka Shooting Complex in Mirpur on Saturday (March 26).

The BGMEA President said that the laundry sector (a technology applied to alter or modify the look, appearance, comfort and design of garments) is making a significant contribution to the development of the country’s RMG sector.

“It’s going better now than before.”

He added that now there is no need to bring washing technologists from abroad.

“Our technologists work in different garment factories and have a good reputation. This saves us a lot of money.”

Mentioning that the garment sector will surpass US$50 billion by 2023, the BGMEA President said, “We are playing a leading role in building Bangabandhu’s Shonar Bangla, led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.”
