A worker hangs clothes to dry on the roof of a garment factory in the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka on June 15, 2005. Across Bangladesh, hundreds of small clothing factories have closed or slashed jobs following the January expiry of worldwide export quotas allowed under the Multi-Fibre Agreement (MFA), which had regulated the global clothing trade. Under the MFA, major markets in the United States and Europe guaranteed imports of textiles and garments from poor countries such as Bangladesh and Sri Lanka under a quota system.
