Of the total export in January-March 2018, around 48 per cent or $185 million of garments were destined to the US. This a 16 per cent jump compared to $160 million during the comparable period of 2017.
Month-wise, exports earned $129 million, $133 million and $123 million in January, February and March respectively, compared to exports of $104 million, $110 million and $116 million in the corresponding months of the previous year.
If the current trend continues, the council is hopeful of achieving $1.8 billion in exports this year, the daily said quoting council executive director Sherin Hosny.
