Some leaders of Bangladesh’s $26 billion garment industry expect Western fashion retailers to review their ties with the world’s second-largest garment exporter after Islamist militants killed more than a dozen foreigners in an attack on a Dhaka restaurant.

Bangladesh, one of the world’s poorest countries, relies on garments for around 80% of its exports and for about 4 million jobs, and ranks behind only China as a supplier of clothes to developed markets like Europe and the United States.

“An incident like this will definitely impact us, in as much as our importers from places such as (the) U.S. and China will be wary to visit because of the security concerns,” said Shahidul Haque Mukul, managing director of Ananta Garments.
