Technical Report

Agricultural produces is the lifeline of Bangladesh’s economy. Production and marketing together contribute about 50 percent share of the GDP. As marketing is the code of processing, transportation and storage activities links the consumers with the producers, the role of market and marketing services is therefore of vital importance.Production and marketing structure have undergone a fundamental transformation. The food grain marketing system has changed dramatically in Bangladesh over the past several decades. While rice production doubled between the early 1960’s and early 1990’s, the percentage of production that marketed rose from 10-14 percent to nearly 50 percent, and market volume increased six-fold. The purpose of this study is to set forth the key issues that must be resolved in formulating a national food policy that can help achieve food security.
