Star Online Report

Foreign currency reserve continued its record growth to reach $20 billion today on the back of a modest growth in remittances and exports and a fall in imports.

This was the first time in the history that the reserves have surged past the $20 billion mark, which placed Bangladesh second only to India in the subcontinent, the central bank said.

On March 19 this year the reserve crossed $19 billion for the first time.
