DHAKA – The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Export Association has said work will commence this summer on a new 492-acre garment industrial park which will provide a home for 300 factories and generate around US $3 billion annually in export revenues. Significantly, priority relocation to the park will be offered to owners of factories which are found to be non-compliant with assessments which have been carried out by the Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety and Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety. The BGMEA claims the park will place an emphasis on sustainability, including connecting factories located at the park with a modern Central Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) for the disposal of industrial liquid and sewerage water.
