Government aims to realise export earnings worth $60b in 3 years

The Bangladeshi government has come up with a host of incentives including low-interest loans under the new export policy to facilitate receipts of $60 billion by fiscal 2020-21. Last fiscal year, exports fetched $36.66 billion, up 5.81 percent from fiscal 2016-17, but fell short of the government’s target of $37.5 billion, according to data from the Export Promotion Bureau.
