Shipping Minister Shajahan Khan said yesterday necessary steps would be taken soon to cut the turnaround time for ships at Chittagong port.
The minister said this during a meeting with the leaders of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) at his office.
A BGMEA delegation, led by its President Abdus Salam Murshedy, called for reducing the turnaround time for ships at Chittagong port, a setback that he said weakened the port's efficiency.
Hasan Abdullah, chairman of BGMEA standing committee on port, and Monir Hossain, chairman of BGMEA standing committee on customs, were among the delegates.
The delegation also pointed out that the goods handling at the port is being delayed 10/11 days instead of 2/3 days for the last two months.
