Germany became the top export destination for local readymade garments (RMGs) in the just-concluded fiscal year (FY) 2017-18, Export Promotion Bureau (EPB) said. The country fetched $5.57 bn from RMG exports to Germany- an 8.65 per cent growth compared to the corresponding period of FY ’17. According to the official data, it was $5.13 bn in the previous fiscal. Previously, the US was the biggest market for Bangladeshi apparel. Exporters and experts attributed this achievement to the duty-free facility provided by Germany and other European nations.
