BANGLADESH: Readymade Garment Exports Grow 9.5%
Bangladesh exported 9.5 per cent more readymade garments in the first three months of the year, after the end of international textile quotas opened up new trading with the EU, according to government statistics.
The country's garment exports were worth $1.5 billion during the three-month period, largely due to good knitwear sales to the EU, trade expert, Mustafizur Rahman told AFP.
Sales of woven garments, however, dropped 5.6 per cent, Rahman said.
