Cumilla EPZ sees export growth even in pandemic

17 October 2021

Business Desk :
Factories inside the Cumilla Export Processing Zone have registered excellent export growth by fetching $751 million over the last 15 months when the pandemic raged, riding on uninterrupted production in compliance with health safety guidelines.
They exported $565 million worth of goods in FY21 in contrast to $464 million earned in FY20. In the first three months of the current fiscal year, their export receipts amounted to $185 million, according to Cumilla EPZ sources.
In FY19, the EPZ raked in  $490 million in export earnings. The EPZ authorities have put this impressive export figure down to the continuation of factory operations by maintaining Covid-19 protocols, arranging lunch in different shifts to ensure physical distancing, and 14-day quarantine for workers who fell sick.
