RMG factories to remain open amid 'all-out' lockdown: BGMEA president

Apparel factories would remain out of the purview of the "all-out lockdown" that will begin on July 1.

The decision was made at a high-level meeting on Saturday, Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) President Faruque Hassan said.

Banks, ports and customs houses associated with the industries would remain open during the lockdown, said the BGMEA chief. 

He requested all concerned parties to respect the government's decision, which is an attempt to bring positivity rates and fatalities down to get a second coronavirus wave under control.

"It is expected of all its members and concerned parties to operate while strictly following all the health safety guidelines as stated by the BGMEA," said the BGMEA president.
