  • Global economy loses steam as Chinese, European factories falter

    World economic growth lost momentum in September, with China's factory output shrinking again, euro zone manufacturing growth slowing, and US activity steady.

  • Not a rosy picture for industry

    ACCORDING to an international survey carried out by VeriskMaplecroft, Bangladesh's aspirations to become a major gateway for international manufacturing is in for a shock. Having being ranked 35 out of 100 cities most vulnerable to natural disasters, it is imperative for the government to factor in the exposure of future industries and industrial belts to natural vagaries. Dhaka has been identified as the worse affected followed by Barisal, Chittagong, Khulna and Narayanganj. Sadly Dhaka is the premium industrial centre for the country.
