After the meeting, Kamal briefed media remotely, saying that Bangladesh’s current export target is $60 billion.

“All exporters will get uniformed facilities under the export policy. Besides we will provide policy support regarding challenges over Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR),” he said.

To meet the goal, he stated that the government will focus on recycling, research, and development.

In response to a query, Kamal stated that Bangladesh will never slip into the middle-income trap because the country’s own resources and funds are being used to develop the country.
