Grain imports to begin from Russia, Vietnam, India

Bangladesh is set to sign agreements with three different countries, including Russia, finalising the import of 8.3 lakh tonnes of wheat and rice. Imports were on hold after the start of the Russia-Ukraine conflict in February. The new agreements are set to bolster Bangladesh’s food reserve and food security. The import of the vital staples is also a matter of relief at a time when crop production is uncertain due to unpredictable weather conditions as a sign of global climate change.
