Bangladesh exports up 8 pct in January as garment sales rise

Bangladesh exports in January rose nearly 8 percent from a year ago to $3.7 billion, government data showed on Wednesday, driven by an increase in overseas sales of readymade garments.


Exports for July to January rose 13.4 percent from a year earlier to $24.2 billion, the Export Promotion Bureau said.

Sales of key readymade garments, including knitwear and woven items, totalled $20.22 billion in July-January, up 14.5 percent from a year earlier.
