Bangladeshi fruit and vegetable exports rose almost 40 per cent in the first nine months of fiscal year 2007-08, spurred by the increased willingness of foreign airlines to carry fresh produce from the country, according to The Daily Star.

In the nine months to 31 March, exports of perishable agricultural produce rose to US$90.38m, up 38 percent on the same period a year earlier. The increase marks a sharp rebound from the performance in 2006-07 when exports fell, it said.
