WASHINGTON — Bangladesh has accepted the U.S. offer to allow the entry of up to 175,230 dozen pairs of cotton trousers that were embargoed at the end of July, with a penalty of three times the amount next year if the entire amount enters before yearend, officials confirmed Friday.

Mohammed G. Hussain, commercial counselor at the Bangladeshi Embassy here, said officials estimate they will need to borrow an extra 105,000 to 140,000 dozen pairs, or 3 to 4 percent against the base limit of 3.5 million dozen pairs. The amount would reach 5 percent if all the embargoed goods are let into the country.
