Dhaka terror fears threaten Bangladesh's exports, remittances

Nine of the 20 slain hostages in the Dhaka attack were Italian, most of whom were involved in the garment industry.

DHAKA -- Security concerns linger in Bangladesh a month after the deadly terror attack on a Dhaka eatery, casting shadows over an economy dependent on garment exports and remittances.

Miran Ali, director of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association, worries that export growth may slow. Ali runs factories that make clothing for global giants such as H&M Hennes & Mauritz and the Benetton Group. Though no orders have been canceled, he said it has become tougher to find new clients.
