has been working as finacial and data journalist at the Financial Express of Bangladesh over past 17 years. Studied economics and trained on data application from many local and international organisations. 

Project description:

This is on face mask export by Bangladesh. The covid-19 has created an opportunity to divesify the country’s export basket. 

Impact reached:

Many clothing and other conglemerate have started producing locally the face mask instead of imprts after the publicaion of the news. the government has offered subsidy and other benfits for the production of the mask. The Ministry of Commerce of Bangladesh had many meetings with the local clothing and pharma/drug producers to make more mask. 

Techniques/technologies used:

We mainly used excell and google sheet. TDM, the export import data service provider has given some raw data. I customerized it.

What was the hardest part of this project?

the hardest part was to identify Bangladehs’s share among many such mask producing countries 

What can others learn from this project?

They know sone data source TDM 

They know how easily can be made it.
