The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) has proposed a joint collaboration programme with Disney to start unconditional sourcing in Bangladesh.
In a meeting with Dreamwave President David Grazi, along with its Global Vice President Albert Daniel, BGMEA President Faruque Hassan proposed a collaboration programme in New York on Friday.
Director of BGMEA Abdullah Hil Rakib and its former president Md Shafiul Islam (Mohiuddin) were also present at the meeting with the US-based apparel brand, says a media release.
Since Dreamwave is a major sourcing partner of Walt Disney, BGMEA proposed a joint collaboration programme with Disney to start unconditional sourcing in Bangladesh and build capacity together understanding their specific need in technical, social compliance and sustainability.
They had discussions over other issues including the potential of Bangladesh as a sourcing country for activewear, outerwear, swimwear, and workwear.
The BGMEA president requested Dreamwave to increase its sourcing from Bangladesh especially garments produced from man-made fibre.
They also discussed how BGMEA and Dreamwave could work together to showcase the good stories of Bangladesh’s apparel industry.
