Govt considers importing two million tons of rice
The government is thinking of importing two million tons of rice, to compensate for the shortage caused by the recent rain and flood in various parts of the country. Planning Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal announced it during a meeting at the National Economic Council conference room in Agargaon, Dhaka on Sunday. He further mentioned that up to eight million tons of Boro paddy had been destroyed by the latest bout of monsoon floods that inundated several districts. He estimated that a total of 12-14 million tons of rice had been damaged as well, causing a rather significant deficiency. As the flood has dispersed many families out of their homes, the demand for food and shelter has increased. The government is aware of this situation and hopes to make up for the shortage of food, sources in the Ministry of Planning said.
