DHAKA: Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi said the air shipping cost, on an emergency basis, for each kilogram (kg) of imported onion is around Tk 150.

He said, “Air shipping cost is Taka 150 per kg apart from other cost of the imported onion. Despite this, we brought the onions by air considering benefit of the people. If we had supply enough, the price would not have increased so much.
