According to the Bangladesh Bank (BB) data, the country's gross FDI inflows stood at $2,798 million in FY18.
The figure was $3,038 million in FY17, it showed.
According to BB data, net FDI inflow in the country in the last fiscal (FY18) stood at $1,583 million against $1,653 million in the same period a year earlier, reports Xinhua.
Inadequate basic infrastructure has long been blamed for impeding large FDI inflow in Bangladesh.
