Knitwear producers & exporters ask for fire station
Jan '11
The knitwear producers and the exporters in Bangladesh recently appealed the government to establish a fire station in industrial region of Fatullah in Narayanganj, so as to ensure the safety of the workers and the factories in the region.

There are 221 factories that are functional in the Bangladesh Small and Cottage Industries Corporation (BSCIC) estate in Fatullah, which jointly employ around two million workers.

Bureaucratic processes are delaying the setting up of fire station.

The Commerce Minister in August 2010 gave an assurance during a demonstration that a fire station would be established in the region within next seven days, while the Labour Minister too in November last year gave a similar assurance that the essential facility would be set up within the precincts of BSCIC within a month's time, but none of the promises has been fulfilled till date.

Thus, the knitwear producers and exporters have requested the government to take necessary steps to immediately establish the fire station.
