The Industries Ministry is planning to set up a readymade garment (RMG) industrial park outside Dhaka aimed at shifting the apparel from the capital, official sources said, reports BSS.
A project earmarking Tk 4.38 billion has been taken to set up the planned RMG industrial park on 300 acres of land at Bausia under Gojaria upazila of Munshiganj district.
Industries Minister Dilip Barua said that the main objective of the planned industrial park is to shift the RMG industry from Dhaka.
Barua said such an industrial park would not only provide one-stop services to garment entrepreneurs but also reduce pressure of the potential apparel industry in the city.
“This will be a model RMG industrial park, which will help attract foreign buyers,” Khandaker Nuruzzaman, joint chief (planning) of the ministry told the news agency earlier.
The park will have various facilities including attractive industrial plots, internal roads, drainage facilities, uninterrupted supply of utilities, Central Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP), waste dumping yard and fire fighting equipment.
