Due to the pandemic situation, European Union and the world put the effort into textiles, clothes, footwear, and accessories supply chains, in the midst of an ongoing social and climate crisis. On another hand, the COVID has seriously impacted major manufacturing hubs (China, India, and Italy), leading to major supply disorders. Textile industry is the heart of our economy. We have developed our industry a lot and there are so many remarkable developments we have already achieved i.e Green Industry, Compliance Factory, industry best practices etc. Team Denim Focus talked with industry owners and stakeholders and took quick feedback regarding the present business situation. Ahsan Mahmood, Country Manager, Gina Tricot, recently shared his opinion about the recent scenario of RMG industry with Denim Focus.

Covid-19 infection is badly spreading in the country. Government has taken and tried all initiatives to manage the situation. We need to follow health and safety or no one can stop the spreading. Business is still running during the situation and all the crucial times Bangladesh have done great job to support brands to deliver products. But if we lock down, continuing with closing business units will be a tough situation for the total business. 

No one waits for the good time when it will come to be normal. So, we need to save people and also run industries. Lock down May be a way to stop unnecessary movements and it can be stricter, but factories should run with the way it is running now ensuring health and safety matters to continue business, ensuring jobs and more opportunity when other countries fail to survive. We (Gina tricot) as a brand always focus to increase business in this country and we hope Bangladesh keeps the growth continuing.
