Bangladesh’s exports rose 13.6 per cent in February from a year earlier to $2.85 billion, boosted by stronger sales of garments, official data showed on Sunday.Exports for July to February, the first eight months of the country’s 2015-16 financial year, rose 8.9 per cent from a year earlier to $22.12 billion, the Export Promotion Bureau said.Sales of garments, comprising knitwear and woven items, totalled $18.13 billion in July-February, up 9.5 percent from a year earlier.Garments are a key foreign-exchange earner for the South Asian nation, whose low wages and trade deals with Western markets have helped make it the world’s second-largest apparel exporter after China.
