Bangladesh earned $3.83 billion in merchandise exports in May, the lowest in nine months, as buoyancy in demand ebbed owing to higher inflation, according to data released by the Export Promotion Bureau (EPB) today.
Exports grew 23 per cent year-on-year in May, up from $3.1 billion in the same month a year ago.
Earnings in May fell compared to that of April when Bangladesh fetched $4.73 billion in export receipts.
