One of the USITC commissioners asked whether the average work efficiency and production power of Bangladeshi workers was higher than that of Cambodia. He asked whether workers could produce comparatively more products despite having lower wages than Cambodian workers.

Farooq Hasan replied, “It is not possible for me to say whether Bangladeshi workers are more capable than Cambodian workers or not.” Textile owners in Bangladesh have invested heavily in modern technology machines. Bangladesh tops the list in terms of making products using automated machines. Therefore, the level of physical labor required from workers is minimal. However, Bangladesh lags behind China, Vietnam and Indonesia in terms of production efficiency.
