Can the apparel sector grasp technology’s opportunities?

This week: Rubana Huq, president of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association, discusses the milestones of progress in the country’s apparel sector in the six years since the Rana Plaza disaster, and argues that the garment businesses needs to be continually evolving and innovating to maintain its position in world markets. She talks about the challenges that new technologies, and industry 4.0, bring to a labour-intensive sector.

Plus: Maple Leaf goes carbon neutral, sugarcane’s potential Amazon expansion, and why the ideal daily diet is beyond 1.6 billion’s pockets, in the news digest.
