The Export Promotion Bureau (EPB) official, said “the country earned a total of 9,375.11 million dollars from export during July-August of fiscal 2023-24 compared to 8,591.82 million dollars a year earlier.”
Quoting the EPB data, he said export income for August was about 4,782 million dollars, 3.80 percent higher than that in the same month last year. The official said overall export surged as demand for made-in-Bangladesh garment items picked up.

Bangladesh has set its export target for 2023-24 fiscal year at 62 billion dollars including over 52 billion dollars from ready-made garment products.
