Leather sector recovers after two years of slump

The export of leather and leather goods from Bangladesh has rebounded after more than two years due to higher shipments to non-traditional markets, exporters said. According to Export Promotion Bureau (EPB), the leather and leather products sector registered a growth rate of 1.32 per cent, resulting in earnings of $185.41 million in July-August of the current financial year. This figure was $183 million during the same period in the 2018-19 FY.
