The speakers at the event shared their insights about the various challenges of the readymade garment sector in Bangladesh and how to overcome those challenges, and the importance of world class enterprise solution in this regard.
The NBR Chairman Ghulam Hussain discussed how Bangladesh is perceived around the world for its entrepreneurship. He said, “Compliance is a big issue. Everyone knows it has a price, but we must not forget that it has rewards too. Hence, our businesses should think more about it and implement. Modern technology and software solutions are much needed for many reasons in industries. One of them is assessing the amount of damage occurred due to any incident and managing the post-accident episodes successfully. Software solutions like SAP can be helpful in such occasions. I hope the company will look into the matter of affordability of the software also for a country like Bangladesh.”
The German Ambassador Dr. Conze said, “Bangladesh, like Germany has many middle and small enterprises, many of which are family owned. SAP has been successful in making those businesses dynamic in Germany and so should happen here in Bangladesh.”
The BGMEA President Atiqul Islam said, “The next generation of businesses will face bigger challenges and hence they will need more technologically advanced solutions. In this regard, we look forward to solution providers like SAP who can help us integrate our businesses in a better way.” Pointing at the rising demand of trade union in the country at present, Islam said, “The number of trade unions is increasing.
