Prime Minister (PM) Khaleda Zia Wednesday welcomed the dialogue initiative taken by the business community to break a persisting political standoff between the government and the opposition, reports UNB.
"We are always in favour of discussion and still ready to sit across the table if the opposition comes in," she told BGMEA leaders.
The PM also urged the owners of garment industries to share the output of development and earnings with their employees and workers equitably.
She made the call and remarks when a 23-member delegation of the newly elected executive body of BGMEA, led by its president SM Fazlul Huq, made a courtesy call on the PM at the ICC.
The Prime Minister said BNP government has always been giving all-out support to industrial sectors which are bringing foreign exchanges, generating income for the common people, accelerating country's progress and empowering the womenfolk.
