The female members of the BGMEA Board, spouses of former BGMEA presidents and current Board Members, the Senior Vice President of BGMEA and Panel Leader of Sammilito Parishad, S. M. Mannan (Kochi), attended the event. The candidates from the Sammilito Parishad for the upcoming BGMEA election, and various industry stakeholders, were also present at the program.

On behalf of the women entrepreneurs, Barrister Shehrin Salam Oishee, Director, BGMEA, introduced S. M. Mannan (Kochi) and other candidates from the Sammilito Parishad during the ‘Women’s Night’ event.

There are two women entrepreneur candidates in the Sammilito Parishad. One is Barrister Shehrin Salam Oishee, the current board Director of BGMEA, while the other is Nusrat Bari Asha.

At the program, women entrepreneurs mentioned the support they received from BGMEA, particularly under the leadership of the Sammilito Parishad. They said the journey of women entrepreneurs in the garment industry has not been smooth. Although the number of women entrepreneurs in this industry is gradually increasing, they are constantly faced with various obstacles and harassment in business management and expansion. They said the boards under the leadership of Sammilito Parishad have always come forward with support to the women entrepreneurs for their development as well as in addressing issues such as banking and customs. Even, the women Directors in the current BGMEA Board have been making valuable contributions to various important areas such as sustainability and circularity.

At the event, the speakers called for votes to elect the full panel of the Sammilito Parishad in the upcoming BGMEA elections.

  1. M. Mannan (Kochi) said, “If we win the election, we will prioritize initiatives to address the problems faced by the women entrepreneurs.”
