Talking to BSS, a senior official of the Bangladesh Bank said forex reserves have crossed the $41 billion-mark again following the lower import payment pressure on the economy and higher inflow of inward remittance in the recent months.

The continuous purchase of US dollars from the commercial banks has directly contributed to reaching the mark, he added.
