Six major trade associations in the U.S. and Canada are urging the Bangladesh government to eliminate import duties on safety equipment, which would vastly bring down the costs related to remediation in garment factories and improve factory safety.
Executives with the American Apparel & Footwear Association, National Retail Federation, Retail Industry Leaders Association, U.S. Fashion Industry Association, Canadian Apparel Federation and Retail Council of Canada wrote to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Wazed and said, “The elimination of these duties would greatly accelerate the current efforts to improve worker safety in Bangladesh.”
