United News of Bangladesh . Dhaka

The development of the labour inspection strategy will help set the direction for the next five years and develop a credible and effective inspection system for Bangladesh, said state minister for labour and employment Mujibul Haque Chunnu on Thursday.
He came up with the remarks at a consultation on the contents of a draft at a city hotel organised by the ministry of labour and employment with the support of ILO’s improving working conditions in the RMG sector programme funded by Canada, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
The department of inspections for factories and establishments has undergone considerable improvement in recent years, said Chunnu.
Some 50 participants representing government ministries and regulatory agencies, employers’ organisations, trade unions, brands and retailers, NGOs and development partners took part in the consultation, the first of a series of three that are planned.
During the consultation, the need for the strategy to go beyond key export-oriented sectors was emphasised.
