When will India have its Rubana Huq, the first ever female BGMEA president?

Have a closer look at the picture. Bangladesh’s Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina (R) is congratulating Dr. Rubana Huq on winning the Board of Directors of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) elections and becoming the first-ever female president of BGMEA. One thing that is commendable in the shot is that it features two women holding very important positions, in a male dominated society.
With more than 4,300 members, the 36-year-old BGMEA is a national trade organisation of apparel manufacturers in Bangladesh. Rubana Huq represents the Sammilita Forum panel which won all 35 posts for directors in the polls held on 6 April. She is also the MD of Mohammadi Group and her husband late Annisul Huq was also a former BGMEA President. Mohammadi Group diversified into various business segments and works with top global brands like H&M, Walmart, Target, COS, Sears, Springfield, El Corte Ingles and many more.
