Bangladesh has a plan to import up to 10 lakh tonnes of wheat from India under government to government contract.
According to the source, the concerned food ministry has already taken necessary steps.
Bangladesh has sent an offer letter to the Bangladesh High Commission in India for making a negotiation with the Indian government to import as much as 10 lakh tonnes wheat, said Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder.
He said, we are trying to make correspondence with seven to eight Indian Wheat export companies and to seek clearance from the Indian government.
Bangladesh usually imports wheat from Russia, but the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war has compelled us to import wheat from India.
