Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN)– The Bangladesh Textile Mills Association (BTMA) has expressed its grave concern over the recent terror attacks saying that such attacks may have adverse impact on the apparel and clothing sector.

Country’s image has faced question abroad due to the attacks and killings at Gulshan in the capital Dhaka and Sholakia under Kishoreganj district, the trade body said.
