Bangladesh: Govt cuts duty to allow import of rice by private traders.
Jan 13, 2021

The government on Sunday decided to allow private traders to import rice in a desperate bid to offset high rice prices in the domestic market.
It announced lowering import duty to only 25% from the existing 62.5% so that private importers can supplement recent government efforts of importing rice by floating international tenders.
At a press conference, Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder, however, made it clear that whoever intends to import rice will have to seek permission from his ministry by January 10.
