US efforts on to address labour issues: State Department

 The United States is actively engaged with the highest levels of the government of Bangladesh, exporters, and buyers in addressing labour issues and continuing doing business.

“So, it’s something we’re in regular contact with, we’re discussing and thinking about in the building, and we’ll continue to focus on,” US State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters in the daily press briefing in Washington.

Psaki said just a few weeks ago, Under Secretary Wendy Sherman had extensive discussions in Bangladesh on these issues.

“Ambassador Mozena (Dan W Mozena) regularly engages with the Bangladeshi – Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association and has pressed them also on these issues,” said the Spokesperson.

Asked whether there is any special request or special instructions from the Congress or from the Senate committee, Psaki said, “I would point you to the committees on that.”
