Bangladesh’s trade deficit shrinks 48pc in FY23

Staff Correspondent: Bangladesh’s trade deficit in the fiscal 2022-23 (FY23) narrowed amid a raft of measures, including import controls.
The country’s trade deficit has decreased to -$17,155 million ( around 48 percent) in FY23 – down from -$33,250 million in the previous fiscal year – due to the tightening of imports, according to data from the Bangladesh Bank (BB).
