Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi was the chief guest at the event titled ‘HSBC-AUW School of Apparel: Leading the Future of Fashion’. He said that 60 percent of the workers in the country’s garment industry are women. This industrial sector has been created by their labor and sweat. 100 billion garment exports are envisioned by 2030. For this, women should be made more efficient. In addition, this skill should be used.
When this industry started 40 years ago, women did not know how to operate machines. The place has changed a lot. Therefore, through the program that HSBC and AUW are launching, women leadership will be created. The garment industry will move forward.
HSBC’s Head of Commercial Banking South and Southeast Asia Amanda Murphy is excited to launch the programme. He said, ‘With the development of technology and the importance of sustainable development, the garment industry is growing rapidly.
We are delighted to jointly launch the postgraduate program with AUW. Through this, we will be able to train future generations of talent to continue innovation in Bangladesh’s largest export industry. An important aspect in this regard is that the program will help women develop professional and leadership skills.’
