...A SWOT Analysis on RMG Sector in Bangladesh RMG is the leading industry in Bangladesh. It is basically a labor-intensive industry and it needs limited financial investment and relatively simple technology compared to other high technical industries. The success story of Garment Industry in Bangladesh is the story as to how the readymade garments starting in the late seventies as an insignificant non-traditional item of export. In 1998-99 this sector has earned 4019.98 million US$ through exporting which is 75.67% of the total export. The tremendous success of Readymade Garment (RMG) exports from Bangladesh over last two decades has surpassed the most optimistic expectations. At present Bangladesh is the 6th largest exporter to USA and in 1997 Bangladesh becomes 18th largest exporter in the world. Now Bangladesh ranks first export of T-shirts to Europe (BGMEA, 1997-98). The overall impact of the readymade garment export industry is certainly one of the most significant social end economic developments in contemporary Bangladesh. The remarkable achievement of RMG sector is now exposed to each and every country. Despite these impressive achievements and the probable challenges in the near future, if properly managed, the prospects for further expansion and growth for this sector remain bright. There are some major threats still exits in this sector but Bangladesh has the ability to overcome these threats. Readymade Garment (RMG) industry holds a key position in the...

Rmg Industry of Bangladesh

...agriculture the primary engine of economic growth and employment generation but this approach has not worked. The Ready-Made Garments (RMG) industry occupies a unique position in the Bangladesh economy. Bangladesh has a total population of over160 million. Among of vast population about 3.5 million people are working in the garments industries. It is the largest exporting industry in Bangladesh, which experienced phenomenal growth during the last 20 years under the quota system of Multi-Fiber Arrangement (MFA). The abolition of quota system thus brings new challenges for Bangladesh’s apparel industry to continue its current status and enhance it in a free flow of apparel trade era. According to BGMEA, after the Liberation War of Bangladesh, in 1983 the Ready-Made-Garment (RMG) industry emerged to be a most promising sector in the socio-economic context of Bangladesh. From that point of time till now, this industry has grown and developed so rapidly that currently Bangladesh is exporting RMG products worth 5 billion USD every year to countries like EU, USA, Canada and other countries of the world. Now, Bangladesh enjoys the position of being the 6th largest apparel supplier to the USA and EU countries. The sector rapidly attained high importance in terms of employment, foreign exchange earnings and its contribution to GDP. Background of RMG industry in Bangladesh since beginning of ‘80s Export-oriented garment exports from Bangladesh were initiated in the beginning of......

Labor Unrest in the Rmg Sector

...Labor unrest in the RMG sector–reasons and remedies October 7, 2010 The prevailing worsening situation in readymade garment (RMG) sector is not good for country’s feeble economy. RMG sector accounts for 76% of our total annual foreign exchange earnings. Once, Jute was the only foreign exchange earning item. But the golden age of Jute is now over. At present, the RMG is our only dependable export item. The textile sector has emerged as a backward sector to this RMG sector. Spinning, weaving, Knitting; dying, finishing etc have emerged as a backward linkage industry. These areas of the of the textile sector are contributing to the economy of the country. So, if the RMG sector suffers any crisis, the repercussion will be felt everywhere in the rickety economy. Now, there are 350 spinning mills operating in the country, which is catering to the demand of the RMG sector and thus saving huge amount of foreign exchange. At present, the capacity of the spinning mills is 1.6 billion meters. There are 180 dying-finishing mills in the country with a capacity of 120 million meters per year. The production capacity of the knitting mills is 41 billion meters. What is important here is that they are capable of meeting local demand. The total workforce engaged in this sector is about 2.5 million, of which 60 percent is women. The total production is being exported to foreign countries. The reasons and the remedies of the present crisis: All of a sudden, labor unrest has increased in our......

Implimentation of Six Sigma at Rmg Sector in Bangladesh

...back some inventory to reduce the impact of the risk or improve their supplier relations to reduce the probability of the risk occurring. This notion of an optimal level of leanness, one stop short of a totally lean solution, is depicted in Figure 4. [pic] Certainly the additional costs associated with risk abatement will be significant, but our contention is, that through an Agile Six Sigma approach, supply chains can reduce internal sources of risk whilst improving supply chain efficiency and effectiveness. RMG Business Structure Readymade garment is a labor intensive industry and relatively simple technology compared to other high-tech industries. The RMG manufacturing units are like tailor’s shop; getting order from the foreign buyers and then import raw materials specially fabrics from the foreign suppliers or sometimes buy from the local market as per order, then manufacture garments and supply those to the buyers (Munir, Q. and Salim, R. 2000). In the RMG sector, the Manufacturer - Raw materials Supplier relationship is different. In this Industry the main raw materials are fabrics (Cloths) and few accessories are like button, collar etc. About 80% of the suppliers of accessories are local and accessories suppliers are not responsible to Increase l time. Bangladesh garment manufacturer need more time is getting higher due to import of fabrics mainly from China, Indonesia and India, The total average time to import fabrics from abroad is 50-65 days and this is......

Performance Evaluation of Hr Practices in Rmg Sector

...Chapter One 01 Introduction 1 Introduction In recent years, the Garments sector has emerged as the biggest earner of foreign currency in Bangladesh. Over the last years, Ready Made Garments (RMG) sector experienced impressive growth rates and specifically knitwear products are in high demand by the USA and European markets. The sector contributes significantly to the GDP. It also provides employment to around 4.2 million Bangladeshis. In the field of Industrialization garment industry is a promising step for economy of Bangladesh. In the 1980s, there were only 50 factories employing only a few thousand people. Currently, there are 4490 manufacturing units. The RMG sector contributes around 76 percent to the total export earnings. This sector also contributes around 13 percent to the GDP, which was only around 3 percent in 1991. Of the estimated 4.2 million people employed in this sector, about 50 percent of them are women from rural areas. The garment sector is the largest employer of women in Bangladesh. The garment sector has provided employment opportunities to women from the rural areas that previously did not have any opportunity to be part of the formal workforce. This has given women the chance to be financially independent and have a voice in the family because now they contribute financially. The country’s garments industry grew by more than 15 percent on average during last 15 years. The foreign exchange earrings and employment generation of...

Millions of poor women and men are employed in this industry. However, a supporting import quota system in the USA was stopped in 2005 which has left the RMG sector struggling against new challenges that need to be properly addressed. As the end consumers of the apparel fashion market are becoming increasingly time-sensitive, a decrease in lead time, besides quality and cost criteria, is needed to win more orders from buyers. We have examined the opportunity that lies in an integrated supply chain six sigma to provide a competitive advantage to the Bangladesh RMG sector. A system dynamics approach has been used to identify the dominant variables of supply chain performance (such as enablers, performance or results, and inhibitors) in the RMG......

Industrial Relation in Bangladesh [Epz and Rmg]

...includes those workers not covered by labour laws, self employed workers and workers employed in non-registered enterprises. They constitute about 80 per cent of the total workforce. Informal workers do not enjoy social protection and benefits. According to LFS, 41.98 per cent of the labour force was self employed in 2005-06 compared to 44.70 per cent during 2002-03. Agriculture continues to remain the main activity absorbing the vast majority of the labour force in informal sector. Employment in agriculture is typically dominated by self-employment. There is also a significant proportion of self-employed workers in the non-agricultural workforce without secure contracts, workers benefits or social protection. Many informal sectors like RMG, ship breaking industries, shrimp industry which were previously outside the scope of labour laws, have gradually been included in the formal sector. However labour laws do not apply to those employed in agriculture, rickshaw pullers, day labourers, construction workers and domestic workers. These workers in the informal sector are not organized in any form and have remained outside of the purview of any legal framework that guarantees them freedom of association and collective bargaining. The share of the formal sector in total labour force is only 20 per cent, i.e., some 6 million workers. Of these 20 per cent are employed in the public sector. They include government employees, semi-autonomous bodies, public corporations, and......

Development of Bangladeshi Rmg Sector

...Development of Bangladeshi RMG Sector Introduction The Ready –Made Garments (RMG) sector has emerged as the biggest earner of foreign currency. The RMG sector has experienced an exponential growth since the 1980s. The sector contributes significantly to the GDP. It also provides employment to around 4.2 million Bangladeshis. An overwhelming number of workers in this sector are women. This has affected the social status of many women coming from low income families. History In the 1950s, labors in the Western World became highly organized; forming trade unions. This and other changes provided workers greater rights including higher pay; which resulted in higher cost of production. In order to control the level of imported RMG products from developing countries into developed countries, Multi Fibre Agreement (MFA) was made in 1974. The MFA agreement imposed an export rate 6 percent increase every year from a developing country to a developed country. In such restrictions, producers started searching for countries that were outside the umbrella of quotas and had cheap labor. This is when Bangladesh started receiving investment in the RMG sector. In the early 1980s, some Bangladeshis received free training from Korean Daewoo Company. After these workers came back to Bangladesh, many of them broke ties with the factory they were working for and started their own factories. In the 1980s, there were only 50 factories employing only a few thousand people. Currently, there are......

The Effect of a Raise in the Minimum Wage on Employment and Profitabilty in the Rmg Sector of Bangladesh, Drawing Sources from Other Developing Countries

...Saima Siddiqa Subject: Labour Economics Date: 22/06/15 The Effect of a Raise in the Minimum Wage on Employment and Profitabilty in the RMG Sector of Bangladesh, Drawing Sources From Other Developing Countries The study of minimum wages has led to many debates surrounding the topic whether a raise in minimum wage can kill businesses in profitability and employment or the change in profitability and employment is insignificant. This is a hot topic for policy makers in both developed and developing countries as a raise in minimum wage affects the economy in terms of economic growth, standards of living for the poor, survival of businesses and employment. A lot of research and literature has shown that a hike in minimum wages do not particularly affect the developed nations but the same hikes in developing countries can cause damage to firms depending on the size of the firms and their profitability. This paper attempts to show that the garments sector in Bangladesh (Ready made Garments Industry) faces the same dilemma. Since the Savar tragedy in late 2013 where a garment factory, Rana Plaza, collapsed which killed more than 1,100 people and injured and more than 2,500 people injured, garment workers and civil society demanded a raise of minimum wage from 3000 tk to 5,300 tk every month. This tragedy and similar events in developing countries lead us to think how businesses especially in the developing countries where wage rates and productivity are low can operate......
