The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers
and Exporters Association (BGMEA) has requested the Indian government to
expedite and facilitate trade through the Bangaon-Benapole land port.

BGMEA President Faruque Hassan wrote
a letter to Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka Vikram Kumar Doraiswami in this
regard, requesting him to take up the issue with authorities of India and
resolve the problem at the earliest to expedite the bilateral trade between
India and Bangladesh, which is extremely important for the RMG sector. 

Hassan said Bangladesh’s apparel
exporters are importing substantial volume of raw materials from India and the
transit time from India to Bangladesh is crucial. Due to the security measures
and lack of manpower at the Indian customs point, particularly Bangaon, trade
is facing long delays and the transit time is getting very long for the trucks
in crossing the Bangaon-Benapole border.

Faruque also said that, many
trucks laden with import and export goods are stuck at Indian points which is
hampering trade with India and impacting the transit time of raw materials for
RMG factories in Bangladesh.

Local entrepreneurs have been
trying their utmost to turn around from this situation with the help of the
government and all the players involved in supply chain operation.

The BGMEA chief said RMG sector of
Bangladesh is facing challenges in meeting the lead time given by foreign
buyers to export apparels in the middle of the pandemic and the lockdown.
