Some European clothing retailers, especially Italian ones, are mulling over cancelling or deferring work orders from Bangladesh amid a fall in sales because of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Bangladesh commerce minister Tipu Munshi, who recently said the supply chain situation, however, is improving as workers in China have started joining factories.
The minister was speaking at a meeting on consumer rights at his secretariat office in Dhaka, according to Bangla media reports.
Italy is one of the most important export destinations for Bangladeshi garment items in Europe.
The minister also inaugurated a hotline, 16121, for the National Consumer Rights Protection Department, through which people can lodge complaints in case they face cheating.
