ISSUE OF 2013

In 2013, The Boston Global Forum declares it will spend its efforts on improving the Minimal Global Standards for Worker Safety, given the tragedy of 1,100 garment workers, mostly poor women, were killed in the Bangladesh building collapse. The building was just one of the country’s 5,000 factories, few of which are regulated, and the tragedy shone a spotlight on the need for workplace requirements as well as human dignity.
Attempts are underway to better regulate the 5,000 garment factories in Bangladesh (second only to China) which collectively generate $18 plus billion in annual revenues.
