The export package enabled exporters to improve cash flows for the next six months, as the eligible sectors got refunds on all exports made between January and June. Thereafter, producers would need to make a10 percent export increase to receive the cash.
It seems that exporters just wanted some free money from the government. The incentives should have been provided only to exporters who increased their exports by 10 percent over the previous year, in order to ensure exporters increased their business volumes.
Some experts pointed out that the package was announced under pressure and at a time when export performance was gradually improving anywat, particularly in textiles. They said that textile exports were rising steadily in readymade garments, knitwear, bed wear, and other value-added sectors. Exports of yarn and fabric were still under pressure.
