BRAC University’s joint director at its Centre for Entrepreneurship Choudhury says: “With the regulatory environment in Europe changing significantly over the next 18 months, tools like MIB will be critical in ensuring that brands and retailers are able to easily comply with reporting requirements and that they continue to view Bangladesh as a hub for responsible sourcing.
“That’s why we are delighted to announce the appointment of our multi-stakeholder board, which represents various voices and perspectives in the ready-made garment industry and will be critical as we look to expand the tool’s presence in Europe. Each of our members will bring incredibly valuable insights to our organisation and we are thrilled to have them on board.”
Earlier this summer, BGMEA president Faruque Hassan suggested that innovation, along with responsible and sustainable business practices, are the driving factors behind the growing popularity of Made in Bangladesh garments.
