আজকাল, the Chowdhury Center's e-Newsletter for October 2020 is out!! Read this special issue to find out about an exciting new report on the impact of Covid-19 on the RMG sector in Bangladesh, upcoming events, and recording of past events. আজকাল October 2020

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has shaken the world’s economy and supply chains. In the case of Bangladesh, the RMG sector, which has been one of the major drivers of the socioeconomic development of Bangladesh in the last 40 years, has been especially hard hit with the garment workers having been affected the most. In order to understand the long term implications of the pandemic on the RMG workers, BRAC University’s Centre for Entrepreneurship Development and James P. Grant School of Public Health, in association with the Chowdhury Center for Bangladesh Studies, conducted a rapid survey titled The Impacts of Covid-19 on the Lives of Workers in the Garment Industry, between June 30 and July 13, 2020 with a total of 1,057 garment workers.
