Bangladesh: new tourist police

Bangladesh has formed a police unit to better protect local and foreign tourists and tourism spots. Another main task for this particular unit will be to look after the nature and wildlife in the tourist spots.Due to the country’s National Tourism Authority (NTA), a total of 349,837 foreign tourists visited Bangladesh in 2008, about 21 percent more than in 2007.The lack of security and poor infrastructure were largely blamed for lower tourist arrivals in the country’s remote tourism spots. It is the purpose of the new police unit to change that.Source:; find article here>>.
