Bangladesh report: better margins = better compliance

Written by Brett Mathews

DHAKA - New research suggests the Bangladeshi apparel industry should look to build in additional margins in order to improve labour compliance and sustainability in the sector.

The report looks in detail at the costs and profits associated with the production of various garment items for Bangladesh garment manufacturers and ultimately concludes that increased spending on compliance would be "very difficult" based on current margins.
