AsiaInspection today announces the AsiaInspection 2013 Q2 Barometer, a quarterly synopsis of Asia-based manufacturing and the quality control services industry. Bangladesh was once again the major focus in Q2 after a factory collapse in Dhaka on 13 May killed over 1,100 people. During Q2 there were also continuous reports of deaths in factory fires which kept Bangladesh in the limelight.

Meanwhile, AsiaInspection saw a +56% increase in Social Audit orders including, notably, Fire Safety Audits in Asia in Q2 2013 compared to Q2 2012. In particular, Bangladesh orders increased +64% with other Asian countries following close behind; China (+41%) and India (+53%).
