Finance Minister AHM Mostafa Kamal has declared a 5 percent duty-relax on onion imports following the directive of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. He said it will remain in force until March 31, 2021.

Earlier on September 18, the finance minister hinted about five percent duty relaxation on onion import in a response to the journalists’ query after an online meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Public Procurement. He said “If there is anything to be done in the revenue sector, it must be given a discount. (It was) considered in the past, will still be considered.
