YPSA Coordinator Muhammed Ali Shahin recently commented to The Business Standard, a national level newspaper in Bangladesh, where he mentioned:
“Deaths at the ship-breaking yards are negatively impacting this industry in Bangladesh,”
“Investment funding of crores of Taka is also a significant barrier for the yard owners to ensure their yards as safer and environment friendly. Besides, it takes around two-three years to build a green yard and the facility also needs international certification.
“So, the yard owners should be motivated to invest the required amount of time and money for turning their yards into safer and green yards.”
