According to Ahmed, among other sectors, the government expects to earn US$1.22 billion from leather and leather goods in the new fiscal year.
As reported by ILM, the country’s earnings totalled US$2.68 billion in April 2016, mainly thanks to higher shipments of garments, but also leather and leather goods, jute and jute goods and engineering products; narrowly beating the month’s target of US$2.67 billion.
