Foreign exchange reserve stood at $45.10 billion, the highest ever, as of Monday riding on the strong remittance inflow.
According to Bangladesh Bank data, Bangladesh's foreign exchange reserve hit a record of $45.10 billion.
Growing remittance inflow has played a vital role to push the foreign exchange reserves even amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Inflow of remittance rose by 89.11 per cent in the month of April as expatriate Bangladeshis sent more money to their families here ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr.
According to data provided by the central bank, expatriates sent $2067 million in April, up by 89.11 per cent compared to $1093 million in the same period last year.
