The Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety, a consortium of North American apparel retailers and buyers said, 68 per cent of all necessary repairs across Alliance-linked factories, has been completed till date. At a press conference, they also added that 60 per cent of Alliance linked factories had, to a great extent, completed their corrective action plans.

The press conference was addressed by James Moriarty, Alliance country director, Paul Rigby, chief safety officer, Kazi Wahidul Haque director of engineering and Quamrunnessa Babli, senior general manager.

According to Moriarty, the Alliance has helped transform, what was once, one of the most dangerous industries worldwide into one of the safest and as evidence; the number of fires and safety incidents was going down.

The Alliance completes its pre-determined five year tenure in 2018, to which Moriarty observed by saying, “We will not leave Bangladesh without putting in place the required measures to uphold our safety gains.” (AR)
