Bangladesh transport strike comes to an end

After four days of a transport strike - over fuel prices going up- imports and exports going through maritime and land ports in Bangladesh came to a grinding halt. Truckers continued the strike for the fourth day, demanding a reversal of the 23 percent increase in diesel prices, although bus and launch operators resumed services after the government raised fares.

Owners and workers of trucks, covered vans and other freight vehicles met with the government to discuss a possible end to their ongoing strike on Monday night. After two hours of talks with the government, truckers called off their protest.  

The strike hampered goods transport after it began on Friday. Mostafizur Rahman Nasim, general secretary of Bhomra Land Port C&F Agents Association, said the importers are currently bringing onions, stones, vegetables and spices, among other products. About 300 trucks have been stuck in the port due to the strike, while many goods are awaiting delivery.
