The rice was already shipped from Shanghai on November 8. It is scheduled to reach the Chattogram port on December 3, according to government sources. It is the first batch of the promised quantities of rice by the Chinese authorities, the sources said.

According to a letter sent by the economic and commercial counselor of the Chinese embassy in Bangladesh to the ministry concerned, the batch of rice is going to be transferred from Chattogram to the Jhilongjha food godown . It has been confirmed on October 30 (Memo No. 51.00.0000.112. 14.016.18(part-2)-402. “The shipment of the rest of the rice quantities will be arranged according to the speed of the Customs clearance and the progress of the first batch,” the letter added.
