After being closed for 9 days, wheat import has started again through the Hili land port.

A truck carrying 40 metric tons of wheat from India entered Bangladesh through the Hili land port at around 5 pm on Sunday (May 29). Later another truck carrying 40 metric tons of wheat entered.

President of the Hili Land Port Importers-Exporters' Group Harun Ur Rashid Harun confirmed the information through telephone.

He said the Indian government abruptly stopped exporting wheat on May 12. Although the export of wheat was stopped, under the previous letters of credit (LC) wheat was supposed to be exported to Bangladesh. But due to internal complications, the wheat export was stopped from May 20.

However, after 9 days of suspension, the wheat import started through the port on Sunday afternoon, which brought relief to traders.
