BANGLADESH - The Minister is to allow imports of chicks and eggs from India.

Bangladesh has decided to allow import of day-old broiler and layer chicks and also eggs from India to break the monopoly of some big companies in the country’s poultry sector and also to meet the country’s increasing demands, reports Gulf Times.

Sharful Alam, secretary in the ministry of fisheries and livestock, has said that the import of poultry products from India would begin within a 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 co-ordination committee for co-ordinated efforts to keep the market situation normal, he said.

The co-ordinated efforts of the government, he added, would continue in finding solution to the problems of Bangladesh's poultry sector.
