A meeting was held at the Ministry of Labour and Employment (MoLE) on 23 December in the capital to make decisions regarding the roadmap to be given to the European Union as per their requirement.

In the meeting hosted by MoLE, representatives from the Ministry of Commerce, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and BGMEA were present.


The European Union, a major trading block of Bangladesh has asked the country to submit a draft roadmap by 2 January addressing the issues concerning human rights and good governance in factories and above all the amendment of the labour law and the Export Processing Zone (EPZ) labour law.


The deadline was issued after the 28-member high-powered EU delegation’s visit in October last, which found the progress in addressing the issues slow.
