Nothing to worry about US policy on labour rights: Dr Momen

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has said there is nothing to worry about the new US policy on labour rights.

The foreign minister came up with the remark while talking to journalists at the foreign ministry on Thursday. 

“There is nothing to worry about it. They (the US) buy our products because of our products are high quality and price is cheap and delivery is made on time,” he said.

After that Bangladesh Embassy in Washington DC in a letter to Bangladesh commerce ministry has said politics is behind what is said about labor rights in the memorandum, and the US would try to use the political purpose in different ways.

The foreign minister said the US is a major market for the RMG export and it is the private sector that exports and it is the US private sector that buys Bangladeshi products.

“They buy our products because our products are high quality and price is cheap and delivery is made on time,” Momen added.

The foreign minister said Dhaka will definitely welcome if the US takes initiatives for the development of entire labour sector worldwide.
