Law enforcement agencies have initiated 'special security measures' for the foreign apparel buyers and retailers following the recent terrorist attack in Dhaka.
The new measures would be valid until further notice, officials said.
"Security agencies have been asked to provide full-time security to the foreign buyers during their stay in Bangladesh. The measures have been taken following request from the apparel exporters," a senior Home Ministry official told The New Nation on Saturday.
Earlier, apparel exporters urged the government to take special security measures following deferment of buyers' scheduled visits to Dhaka due to security concern.
"The security measure was enforced last week by the Industrial police in coordination with the BGMEA. Industrial Police have been providing all types of security during their movement. There will also be security in the places where they will be staying during the visit," BGMEA vice-president Ferdous Parvez Bivon told The New Nation yesterday.
He said BGMEA has asked its members to provide information about where their buyers will stay and which places they will visit so that police can ensure their security.
"We are getting tremendous service from the Industrial Police in this regard. The agency has also taken adequate security measures in apparel industrial zones as well as industrial units to avert any untoward incident," he noted.   
When asked, Bivon said, some foreign companies involved in garments business have restricted travel of their officials to Bangladesh after the terror attack in Dhaka. But no negative impact is yet to be seen on our business with them.
On July 1, militants carried out an attack on Holey Artisan Bakery in Gulshan killing 20 hostages, including 17 foreigners, many of whom were associated with the garments business.
"We don't think that foreign buyers will leave the country following the terror attack. Terror attack is now a global phenomenon as we have seen such deadly attacks also in many countries in recent times," said Bivon.
 The BGMEA leader also said that buyers remained scary after the Dhaka terror attack. But things are now improving as the government has taken special security measures for the foreigners.
"Such measures are also helping to regain confidence of the global buyers," he added.
