BGMEA members to work together sector’s survival

BGMEA President M Atiqul Islam on Thursday said their members want to work together for the survival of the country’s RMG sector instead of blaming each other.“We don’t want to blame each other for the recent disaster (Rana Plaza collapse). We want to work together. If the RMG industry survives, everybody will survive,” he said.
The BGMEA president was addressing a press conference at a city hotel organised by Grameenphone to announce its support to 300 victims of Savar Rana Plaza building collapse.
Atiqul Islam said, “I must appreciate the initiative. What I understand it’s done as part of CSR activities.”
He said if the injured workers want to do job in the RMG factories apart from doing this business, they will welcome them.
Grameenphone, the leading telecommunication service provider in the country, extended its support for the 300 victims of Savar Rana Plaza building collapse through setting up Flexiloads business facilities for them.
Under the plan, Grameenphone will provide Flexiload SIM, two mobile phone handsets and set up attractively designed kiosk for each of the 300 victims to start the Flexiload business.
Grameenphone distributors will provide training on operational issues to support their business to grow.
BGMEA President M Atiqul Islam, CEO of Grameenphone Vivek Sood, Chifief Financial Officer (CFO) of the Grameenphone Fridtjof Rusten and senior officials from Ministry of Labour and Employment were present on the occasion.
The fund for this initiative has come from the donation of Grameenphone employees as well as from its corporate responsibility account.
Vivek Sood said, “GP came up with the plan to support the affected people in such a way that is sustainable. With setting up of this new Flexiload business, we’ve tried to express our commitment towards society.”
Earlier, after Rana Plaza collapse, Grameenphone set up six free of cost phone booths adjacent to the Rana Plaza to give telecommunication support to the  family members of the victims. It also organised blood donation programme where its employees donated blood for the wounded. – UNB
