BANGLADESH: WRAP opens factory auditing office
Factory auditing and certification group Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) has opened an office in Dhaka, Bangladesh in a bid to help local manufacturers improve working conditions at their factories.
The office will be led by country manager Mr Saifullah Khawaja, who is already well-known in the social compliance arena in Bangladesh and has prior work experience with brands, audit firms, donor agencies, buying houses and manufacturing units.
“Bangladesh continues to increase in importance as a sourcing destination and we are committed to helping the manufacturing sector improve its social compliance practices,” said Steve Jesseph, president and CEO of WRAP. “Saifullah’s rich background in this sector in Bangladesh will be an excellent asset for us as we continue to grow WRAP in the region.”
