The Export Promotion Bureau has asked the commercial wings of 16 Bangladesh missions abroad to clarify why they failed to meet the export targets, an official said Monday.

The EPB will send the "clarification letters" to the commerce ministry that will fix new targets for four to five exportable items on a priority basis for all commercial wings for the next fiscal year.

"We have asked the commercial wings to explain by May 30 the reasons for the failure to meet the targets," EPB director general Md Khalilur Rahman told a meeting at the commerce ministry, chaired by commerce secretary Feroz Ahmed.

The missions failed to meet export targets for fiscal 2007-08.

The commerce ministry would send fresh letters to the Bangladesh mission chiefs after receiving clarifications, Feroz Ahmed told the meeting.

"From the next fiscal year, we will set new export targets for four to five exportable items on a priority basis," Ahmed told the meeting.

The meeting was told that seven commercial wings of missions in Dubai, Moscow, Canberra, Paris, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur and Berlin could achieve the export targets from July 2007 to March 2008.

The commercial wings of missions in Washington, New Delhi, Ottawa, London, Brussels, Madrid, Beijing, Yangon and Tehran fell behind in the same period.

Out of 44 Bangladesh missions, 20 failed to meet the export targets from July 2007 to March 2008, according to the EPB figures.

Besides, the nine others missions that failed to meet the export targets are Islamabad, Rome, The Hague, Ankara, Hanoi, Cairo, Bangkok, Rabat, Manila, Brunei and Thimpu.
