BSS

Expatriate Bangladeshis sent US $8,312.15 million remittances in the first seven months of the current fiscal 2017-18, which is 15.83 per cent higher than the corresponding period of the preceding year, reports BSS.

According to Bangladesh Bank (BB), the country received $7,176.32 million remittances during July-January period of 2016-17 financial year.

“The flow of remittances into the country rebound in the current fiscal 2017-18 as BB has taken some measures to streamline the legal channel for encouraging Non Resident Bangladeshis (NRBs) to send home money,” BB Deputy Governor Abu Hena Mohammad Razee Hassan told the news agency in the capital yesterday.

He said the recent flow of remittance indicates that it is gradually increasing and this trend is likely to continue in the upcoming months.
