Dear Sirs,

Please refer to paragraph 2 of FE Circular No. 13, dated October 10, 2013 in terms of which Authorized Dealers (ADs) may borrow loan from EDF against their foreign currency loan to member mills of Bangladesh Plastic Goods Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BPGMEA) for input imports in bulk based on the value realized in foreign exchange against inland back to back LCs over the past twelve months, or (ii) USD 500,000 whichever is lower.

02. It has been decided to enhance the limit to USD 1.00 million based on their local deliveries and exports.
