“Construction work of Central Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) has been going on at full pace and other related projects have also been approved ….127 tanneries have submitted their full design plans and these will also be approved within a short time,” said Industries Minister Amir Hossain Amu following a review meeting held at the Industries Ministry.

According to the BSCIC, around 100 tanneries submitted their design plans of their buildings till Tuesday though 155 tanneries were allotted plots in the estate.

Bangladesh Finished Leather, Leather Goods and Footwear Exporters Association (BFLLFEA) President Mohammad Abu Taher said all the big tanneries have submitted their plans. The others would do it very soon.

“Some 25 companies will be the first to begin constructing factories in Savar,” he said.

The government appointed the Bureau of Research, Testing and Consultation of the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) as a consultant to oversee the construction of the tannery industrial park.
