Bangladesh reopens poultry market to India


Bangladesh has decided to allow import of one day-old broiler and layer chicks and eggs from India to break the monopoly of some big companies in its poultry sector and to meet the growing demands, according to a source.


Md Sharful Alam, secretary of the ministry of fisheries and livestock, has said that the import of poultry products from India will commence next week. If the import begins, he said, the prices of eggs, broiler and layer chicks would fall significantly.


The Bangladesh government had earlier formed a permanent committee for co-ordinated efforts to keep the market situation normal.


"Government efforts would continue to find solution to the problems of the poultry sector," he added.
