BGMEA President Faruque Hassan made the remarks while speaking at a virtual session on “Cross-country Learning Session for Business: Moving from Take – Make – Waste Economy to Circular Solutions” held on November 23.

He said, “It is very important for us to develop a customized local eco-system of circularity, tapping local manufacturers and recyclers. We also need to develop the capacity of manufacturers, recyclers, and waste handlers to domestically close the loop.”

“We are also looking forward to post-consumer waste recycling and we need strong collaboration from apparel brands to do so,” he said.

“We need more direct support from the donors and development partners in the area of the circular economy. We believe together we will be able to develop the capacity of the apparel industry of Bangladesh in circularity,” the BGMEA president added.

Dr. Mushtaq Ahmed Memon, Regional Coordinator, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) – Regional Office for Asia & the Pacific, attended the session as the keynote speaker.
