The Bangladesh
Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) urged the EU to continue
providing trade benefits to Bangladesh for 12 years after the country’s
graduation to a developing nation in 2026.

The extension would
help Bangladesh make a smooth transition from the UN’s least developed category
and prepare for all post-graduation challenges, said Faruque Hassan, president
of the BGMEA. Hassan made this request during a meeting with Charles Whiteley,
the EU’s ambassador to Bangladesh, at the BGMEA office in Dhaka’s Gulshan area.

Hassan apprised the
newly appointed EU ambassador about the present situation of Bangladesh’s
garment industry, its challenges, opportunities and future priorities, the
BGMEA said in a statement. He also shared the industry’s impressive
achievements in regards to workplace safety, environmental sustainability and
worker wellbeing.

He hoped Bangladesh
would continue to get the friendly support and cooperation extended by the EU,
especially for the apparel industry. The BGMEA president also sought
cooperation of the EU for capacity development of students of the BGMEA
University of Fashion and Technology in textile, apparel, fashion and business
through collaborations with leading EU universities.
BGMEA Vice President Miran Ali also
attended the meeting.
