BANGLADESH - The country's poultry growers are in an upbeat mood as the finance minister recently assured them of waiving the interests on their classified loans. According to them, this will give the industry a big boost. The growth rate of the poultry industry in the country reportedly declined substantially over the last one decade. It is reported that during the period from 1992 to 2000, the growth rate of the domestic poultry industry was between 40 and 50 per cent. But that robust growth did not last long. Presently, the growth rate is between 15 and 20 per cent. Source: Financial Express
