Bangladesh extends ban on raw jute exports

Dec '15
The Government of Bangladesh has extended its ban on the exports of all sorts of raw jute until further notice, according to Bangladeshi media reports. The government had first imposed the ban for one month starting November 3, 2015.
 
The notification issued by the Textiles and Jute Ministry says, “Under section 4 and 13 of the Jute Ordinance 1962, the export of raw jute will remain suspended until further notice for proper implementation of the Mandatory Jute Packaging Act-2009.”
 
The ministry is currently conducting a campaign to ensure that jute bags are used in packaging of various goods. The ban is expected to increase supply of the fibre for domestic jute bag and sack-makers.
 
Heavy rain and flood in July-September months, the jute-growing season, caused yield loss leading to rise in prices in the domestic market.
 
Normally, Bangladesh produces 7.5 million bales of raw jute annually, of which it exports 1.5 million bales, mainly to mills in India, Nepal and Pakistan. (RKS)
