Bangladesh Hide & Skin Merchants Association(BHSMA) announced rawhide sale will be postponed until the meeting with the Commerce Ministry at 3pm on Sunday.

President of the organization Delwar Hossain made this announcement at a press conference at their Lalabag office on Saturday.

He said that this situation has never occurred in the country in the past. I am sorry for such an unexpected situation.

Referring to the government's decision to export rawhide, Delwar said they had not received any instructions from the ministry. We will obey all the decisions of the government.

However, the BHSMA president said they were not ready to export rawhide without a license.

Adding the current situation has been created for non-payment of tannery owners he said that we could not give salt to rawhide due to lack of cash. As a result, a lot of rawhide has been decomposed this year. If the Tannery owners pay the dues, the situation will improve.
