The government of Bangladesh has taken the necessary steps to keep the stocks, supply and price of onions in the market as per the demand. On Tuesday, the Ministry of Commerce stated that the prices of onions would come down soon as the country had sufficient stocks of onions.
In a statement, the Ministry said: “Onions, imported at public and private levels, have started arriving in the country. There are adequate stocks of local onions. Farmers have increased the sales of these onions in the market. As a result, the import and supply of onions have increased. There is no shortage of onions in the country. The price of onion will come down soon.”
