“BDS Corporation opened a Letter of Credit for importing 200 tonnes of onion from India. In the first shipment, 10 tonnes of onion have arrived. The remaining onions will arrive in phases,” said Md Atiqul Islam, Assistant Director of Akhaura land port. The import cost of the onion is $250 per tonne.

The government decided to allow the import of onions starting from 5 June, 2023 in an effort to curb the steep rise in prices of this essential kitchen ingredient. Onion prices have increased from around TK35 per kg to TK 100 per kg.
