Russians also intend to import mangoes

Bangladesh to resume potato exports to Russia this year

This weekend, Agriculture Minister Dr Abdur Razzaque said that Bangladesh will resume exporting potatoes to Russia this year. "Prior to Russia's ban, a huge amount of potatoes used to be exported from the country. As Russia has lifted the ban, the initiative has been taken to export potatoes again," the minister said. Russia imposed a ban on Bangladesh's potatoes owing to detection of 'Brown rot' disease in potatoes in 2014. It was lifted in March 2022 as the Bangladesh government took measures to make potatoes safe and bacteria-free.

Apart from potatoes, Russia is also interested in buying mangoes, cauliflowers and cabbages from Bangladesh, said the Russian Ambassador.
