A process to purchase 50,000 metric tonnes of chemical fertiliser from Bangladesh has begun.
According to the Agriculture Inputs Company, the process to buy chemical fertiliser has started as per the G2G agreement between the Nepal government and the Bangladesh government.
As per the past agreement, the company supplying fertiliser to Nepal has started receiving it in Bangladesh, said Managing Director of the Company, Netra Bahadur Bhandari.
He said, “The Company selected by us has started receiving the fertiliser from today. The fertilizer would be supplied to Nepal soon after completing all preparation there.”
Saying the supply company has made preparation to bring 20,000 metric tonnes of chemical fertiliser in the first phase, Bhandari added that the fertiliser imported in the first phase would be kept at the depot of the Company in Biratnagar, Birgunj, and Bhairahawa.
The Agriculture Inputs Company has already given the responsibility to the Gentrad FZF Company of the United Arab Emirates to transport chemical fertiliser from Bangladesh. Managing Operator Bhandari and Chairperson of Bangladesh Chemical Industries Corporation, Muhammad Amin Ul Hassan, signed an agreement to purchase chemical fertilizer through the G2G process on December 17, 2020, as the preparation to buy fertiliser from Bangladesh.
The preparation to supply the chemical fertiliser has begun after around two months of the agreement.
