The Finance Ministry plans to increase export earnings of the garment sector up to four billion dollars in four years.
The Ministry said this target is intended to be reached by the year 2015, through special programmes. The garment sector earned 3,262 million US dollars last year. Ministry reports said it reflects 46 percent of total export earnings. According to the report earnings would be increased by maintaining international standards in production. The Ministry further said far sighted economic and foreign policies of the Government will contribute towards achieving this goal.
