Bangladesh exports earned $2.8 billion in October, an increase of 6.4 per cent from a year earlier, driven by a surge in shipments of garments, government data showed on Thursday.
In September, exports had fallen 9.8 percent to $2 billion from a year earlier, which exporters attributed to Eid holidays.
For July-October, the first four months of the 2017-18 financial year, exports rose 7 per cent to $11.5 billion from a year earlier, the Export Promotion Bureau said.
Shipments of key readymade garments, comprising knitwear and woven items, totalled $9.4 billion, up 7 per cent from the same period the previous year.
