Rana Plaza – Assessment 1

As part of my module "Contemporary issues in business and society", I had to make a report of 3 000 words on this case duty answering three questions with respect to a text given by the teacher. 

I went to the library for working, I finished my report in more than 1 week. 

But what can I withhold about this case duty ? 

In the Savar Upazila of Dhaka District, Bangladesh, on April 24, 2013, one of the most important historical disasters in the industry sector after Bhopal and Chernobyl took place. The collapse of the Rana Plaza, which sheltered more than 3,000 workers in the garment industry. It is the third biggest accident of all the industrial history. In this country with 5,000 factories and workshops where 80% of exports are based on textiles, 4 million workers in clothing cost 60 times cheaper than in France and half the price in India. This collapse awakens the anger of the inhabitants. This drama plays for Europe an electroshock. In the debris, English, French and American brand labels where found. This tragedy reveals, beyond the very low wages or bad working conditions, the extreme practices of production that are hidden behind globalization. The clothing industry in Bangladesh represents a big sector since it employs about four million people in approximately 3 500 factories. Ready-made garments is the principal source of country's export, it represents 10% of GDP of the developing south Asian nation.
