According to the statement of the country manager of British retail giant Marks & Spencer, the garment units from Bangladesh are becoming new exemplars of factory safety after the owners have rectified all of the structural errors with the help of Accord, Alliance and the Government. In an interview of one of the renowned media outlet from Bangladesh, the country manager of Marks and Spencer, Shwapna Bhowmick remarked that presently the owners have become more proactive regarding the protection and the environment. Earlier, the scene was little different. It could be termed as one of the biggest shifts in the field of garment sector.
The country manager of Marks and Spencer, Shwapna Bhowmick is the foremost Bangladeshi national to be in charge of M&S’s operations across the country.
