Fisheries and Livestock Minister Narayan Chandra Chanda today said that the government will lift ban on hilsa export soon.
The minister came up with the information while responding to reporters at the conference room of the ministry in the morning after a press briefing.
"We want to export hilsa, as its production has increased as well as demand in the international market," said Narayan.
On August 1, 2012, the government imposed ban on hilsa export.
The minister also said that there is no need to import meat in the country now as the government has a plan to be self-sufficient in meat production.
"The price of meat is reducing at the markets and we expect that it will continue," he said.
