The first-ever trade exposition of fire and building safety products starts today at the Sonargaon Hotel in the capital.
Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety Initiative and Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh — the two retailer groups of North America and the EU — are holding the two-day exposition.

A series of seminar on fire, building and electrical safety issues will be held on the sideline of the exposition to share expertise and technical knowledge, organisers said at a press conference at the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association office in the city on Saturday.
The top 10 challenges in RMG factories in Bangladesh will be discussed in the seminars and the EU Accord will give support for the building and fire safety educational and informational programmes at the exhibition, the organisers said.
‘A number of international firms will showcase world-class products like fire doors, sprinklers, fire hoses and electrical equipments at 53 stalls in the expo,’ BGMEA president Atiqul Islam said at the press conference.
He said the exposition would bring an opportunity of availability of world-class fire and electrical equipments for the garment sector in Bangladesh as entrepreneurs would require the products to ensure compliance.
M Rabin, managing director of North American Alliance, said that the international companies would showcase the products required for removal of the faults to be found in the ongoing safety assessment in the garment factories.
‘The garment sector people in Bangladesh will be able to learn about the right kinds of products which is important for ensuring safety,’ he said.
The exhibition will be supported by The C&A Foundation, Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association, International Finance Corporation and Elevate.
