Export Promotion Bureau (EPB) is a Bangladesh government agency located within the Ministry of Commerce. It is responsible for developing the nation's export industry.[1][2]

Establishment[edit]

It traces its origin to the Export Promotion organization formed when Bangladesh was still East Pakistan in 1962.[3] Initial proclamations were made on August 20 and November 8, 1975. The Export Promotion Bureau Ordinance was enacted in 1977 and consequently EPB was established.[4]
