Chattogram Bureau :
A ship with 52,500 tonnes of wheat has arrived at Chattogram Port from India. The ship is currently took berth in the outer anchorage of Chattogram Port. Once the customs clearance and other ancillary processes, including the plant quarantine certificate, are completed on Monday, they will be unloaded at Chattogram Silo by a lighter ship, according to Chattogram Food Department sources.The previous week, another ship brought 52,500 tonnes of wheat. Chattogram District Food Controller Mohammad Abdul Kader said two government wheat ships arrived in May.
These wheats are being delivered to the warehouses of the food department all over the country. There are two more ships in the pipeline. This wheat will be sold or distributed on government channels.
The Russia-Ukraine war affected the demand and price for wheat in the international market. Exports from India also continued to increase.
In this situation, when India announced to limit the export of wheat except for the neighbouring countries, the price of wheat increased in the wholesale market of the country, which affected the price of flour. As a result, prices of bread, biscuits and paratha at the consumer levels also increased.
Chittagong Chamber of Commerce and Industry President Mahbubul Alam said wheat has been imported at the public-private level keeping in view the demand of previous years. There is no bar on importing wheat from India on the G2G agreement. If the dollar price is kept under control, the situation will become normal.
