Bangladesh’s earnings from exports of readymade garments rose by almost 23 percent in January 2013, boosted by a shift in orders from China.

While woven garments fetched US$ 6.11 billion, showing a growth of 13.57 percent year-on-year during July-January 2012-13, knitwear accounted for US$ 5.92 billion, up 6.39 percent year-on-year.
 
Earnings from both woven apparels and knitwear exceeded the target by 1.49 percent and 1.14 percent respectivley, during the first seven months of the current fiscal 2012-13.
