Onion price hike is a lesson for us: Tipu

Awami League Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi told: Onion price hike is a lesson for us. We have to take measures so that it doesn’t happen in the future. We will focus on increased local production.

Tipu Munshi told that there is no possibility for onion price to come down within a month but it will be available at Tk 70-80 per kg after its import from Egypt within a few weeks.

Tipu Munshi said this while inaugurating the month-long International Trade Fair-2019 in Kazir Dewri Outer Stadium on Sunday.

Tipu Munshi said that we want to become self sufficient. Producing necessary items by ourselves will be our main effort.
