Talking to BSS, EPB Director (Fair and Display) Abu Mukhles Alamgir Hossain said within the European Union, France is a major economic partner of Bangladesh.
"Both countries have developed strong economic cooperation and are enjoying warm business relationships. In fact, the ready-made garment is the major Bangladeshi product for export earnings from France. Export of other products, such as leather and footwear, shrimps and frozen fish, ceramic and pharmaceutical articles, has also increased," he added.
