Despite the pandemic's blow, swift actions like worker vaccinations and robust health protocols led to a remarkable industry recovery. The RMG sector, a national cornerstone, stands stronger today.

The country prioritized supporting SMEs with better services and affordable financing. The industry also championed policy changes for easier business, including extended tax stability and trade license validity.

Furthermore, the nation simplified banking activities and secured access to green financing schemes. This focus on sustainability is evident in the significant rise of green factories, solidifying Bangladesh's global leadership.

Challenges remain, like recent supply chain disruptions. Yet, sector navigated them effectively, showcasing the industry's resilience. Research initiatives are ongoing to pave the way for the next 15 years. The RMG sector, through proactive measures and continued collaboration, is well-positioned for a successful future.
