Bayla has also carried out a study on the recovery plan in the pandemic to mitigate the worries of apparel industry owners in such a condition in the country.

The organization has organized multiple focus group sessions, interviews, and surveys involving 250 garments industry leaders on “Road to Recovery.”

The online session was presented by Sakib Ahmed, DMD of Broadway Group and SVP of Bayla.

Throughout the session, Barrister Shehrin Salam Oishee, Director of Envoy Group and BGMEA, said, “Lockdown is not a complete solution when we think about the economy of a country, where different countries of the world have opened factories.”

Oishee added, “Recently, Vietnam is now in the second position in the RMG sector. Vietnam is in this position today because of its geographical location. They have improved their corona condition by ensuring hygiene and vaccines rather than lockdowns. We have to take the same approach.”

“Last year, 0.03% of the factory workers were affected. Which is very little, but this year is the exception. Even after that, the workers are being vaccinated as font liners with the help of the government. At the same time to increase the awareness of the workers, I am also arranging training in the factories, so that they can also make their families aware,” said Fazlee Shamim Ehsan, Managing Director of Fatullah Apparels and director of BKMEA.

“From July last year to June this year, we were able to deliver 90% of the orders on time. We thank BGMEA and BKMEA for that,” said Shovon Islam, managing director of Sparrow Group.
