The government has banned export of all sorts of raw jute from Bangladesh for an indefinite period.
The textile and jute ministry today issued an order in this regard.
The decision has been taken to meet the country’s additional demand for implementing jute in the mandatory jute packaging law, Mirza Azam, state minister for textile and jute, told The Daily Star.
Earlier, the government imposed a similar month long ban starting on November 3.
