Overall export earnings touched $34.2 billion in the previous financial year and the upward trend can result in the earnings exceeding $60 billion by 2021, said Tofail while addressing the audience during the opening ceremony of Garmentech 2017 as the chief guest of the fair.
The country had earned $3.08 billion in export earnings in 1996, which increased to $6.7 billion by the end of the tenure of Awami League, according to a Bangladeshi news agency.
The 16th Garment and Allied Machinery trade show, 8th Yarn and Fabrics Sourcing Fair 2017 and 8th Garments Accessories and Packaging Exposition (GAP Expo 2017) are simultaneously taking place during the four-day Garmentech fair. It is jointly organised by ASK Trade and Exhibitions Pvt.

He also said that manufacturers of apparel accessories will need to earn $18 billion from exports to achieve the target.
