    Woven and knitted apparel and clothing accessories’ exports together accounted for 80.57 per cent of $24.698 billion worth of total exports made by Bangladesh during July-December 2021-22.

    Meanwhile, home textile exports (Chapter 63, excluding 630510) also rose by 30.77 per cent to $715.95 million during the six-month period under review, compared to exports of $547.48 million during July-December 2020-21.

    In the fiscal ending June 30, 2021, readymade garment exports from Bangladesh increased by 12.55 per cent to $31.456 billion compared to exports of $27.949 billion in the previous fiscal. However, this value was lower than $34.133 billion exports made during July-June 2018-19.

    If the present growth trend continues, Bangladesh, this fiscal, should surpass the value of RMG exports achieved in 2018-19, and may also surpass the garment export target of $35.144 billion set for the ongoing fiscal year.
