Germany sees Bangladesh as a strong RMG supplier

Germany sees Bangladesh as a reliable source of high quality garments. The country will support Bangladesh in its aim to double its apparel exports and to develop a sustainable, compliant, social and profitable garment sector. Germany is the second largest single export destination for Bangladesh’s garment products after the US.

Bangladesh is a priority partner for Germany. In fact, Germany was one of Bangladesh’s first partner countries after it gained its independence. Germany is working with political, civil society and private sector stakeholders to develop strategies to promote compliance with social and environmental standards in garment factories and achieve sustainable improvements in working conditions for garment industry workers.

Projects have focused on improving social and environmental standards and health and safety in garment factories, and on the promotion of small and medium-sized enterprises.

Meanwhile, Germany has urged foreign buyers to increase prices of apparel products to ensure the welfare of garment workers. The country has provided training and expertise to Bangladeshi garment workers and its initiatives in the readymade garment sector have helped in improving the safety standards and workers’ rights in Bangladesh.

Germany is the main hub of 27 countries in Europe that is helping develop the clothing business of Bangladeshi producers and exporters.
