Bangladesh will export rice instead of importing: Sadhan

RAJSHAHI, July 7, 2024 (BSS)- Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder has said Bangladesh will export rice in future instead of importing.

Terming the government's agriculture incentive as a planned and time-fitting step, the minister said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina remained beside the farmers through providing incentives and subsidies to them.

He said the Prime Minister has been working relentlessly to transform agriculture into technology-friendly.

With Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Masud Hossain in the chair, the meeting was addressed, among others, by Upazila Chairman Shahjahan Hossain, Vice-chairmen Noimuddin and Fahima Khatun, Upazila Agriculture Officer Shapla Khatun and Union Parishad (UP) Chairman Borhan Uddin.

Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder said use of technology in agriculture has been enhanced, contributing a lot to boost its production.

On the occasion, he distributed incentives for Aman paddy farming among 1,210 farmers together with handing over cheques of education sub-stipend and bicycles among students of ethnic minorities of Naogaon district.
