Handicrafts Sector of Bangladesh

Bangladesh's handicraft products are being exported around the world mostly in the European markets. In the fiscal year 2017-18 only BANGLACRAFT’s members exported 93203603.25 US dollar handicrafts goods from Bangladesh. And in the last financial year 2018-19 our members exported 48538136.26 US dollar. In fact, actual number and quantity of handicraft products export is even greater; Because there is HS code complexity for handicraft products so the actual number of handicraft exports is showing low at our national export data. If all segments of the handicrafts are added according to the export policy parameters and the complexity of the HS code is resolved, then the real contribution of this sector to our GDP will emerge.
