Bangladesh to allow more rice import to meet target.
Feb 23, 2021

The government would allow the traders who had imported rice earlier as per its directives to bring in more rice to meet its import target, according to the food ministry.
A high official of the ministry told the FE that they had asked the Directorate General of Food (DGoF) to take necessary steps in this regard.
The importers were asked to apply to the government by February 25 with submission of their previous LC opening documents showing that they had imported rice recently following the price volatility in the market, he added.
Earlier, the government had allowed around 320 private-sector traders to import rice setting the condition that they must open LCs by February 15.
