India’s Wheat Exports Declined in recent Times

Bangladesh looked for new markets to import wheat when supplies from India reduced. In 2010, Bangladesh issued a tender of 3,00,000 tonnes of wheat. The Food Corporation of India was requested to supply about 2,00,000 tonnes of wheat. However, both the countries were unable to reach agreeable shipping terms and Bangladesh started to explore new markets ever since. Moreover, India’s wheat supplies have diminished in recent years, thereby affecting the exports.

Bangladesh is expected to buy about 6.3 Million Tonnes of wheat this financial year as its current stock of wheat is expected to be just 1.15 Million Tonnes.
