Government wants to bring cow from Brazil for sacrifice

In a bid to meet the high demand for sacrificial animals ahead of Eid al-Adha, Bangladesh is considering importing cattle from Brazil. This intention was disclosed by Commerce State Minister Ahsanul Islam Titu following discussions with Brazilian Foreign Minister Mauro Vieira during a courtesy meeting on Sunday, April 7.

State Minister Ahsanul Islam Titu highlighted the significance of animal protein from Brazil's perspective, emphasizing Brazil's reputation for exporting meat at competitive prices. During the meeting, the possibility of importing cattle from Brazil at reasonable rates for the upcoming Eid al-Adha was raised.

"We have personally requested them in front of the next sacrifice, if it is cheap, then whether it is possible to send cows during the sacrifice or not," stated the State Minister, indicating Bangladesh's interest in exploring cost-effective options for cattle imports.

Brazil's Foreign Minister expressed optimism regarding the prospects of this collaboration, suggesting a joint effort to move the discussions forward. He extended an invitation to further discussions in July, indicating a potential for progress in identifying suitable areas for cooperation.

Moreover, in addition to the discussion on cattle imports, Bangladesh also sought duty-free facilities for its garment exports during the meeting. The Brazilian Foreign Minister's visit to Dhaka on a two-day trip underscores the growing importance of bilateral relations between the two countries.

The potential import of cattle from Brazil holds significance for Bangladesh, particularly in meeting the religious and cultural obligations associated with Eid al-Adha. As discussions progress, both nations aim to foster mutually beneficial trade relations while addressing the needs of their respective populations.
