Sugar prices have risen globally over the last couple of months
Refiners have cut edible oil and sugar prices by 3 percent or Tk 5 a litre/kilogramme.

Senior Commerce Secretary Tapan Kanti Ghosh says
From April 8, loose sugar will be Tk 104 per kg, packaged Tk 109
The commerce ministry yesterday asked millers and refiners to reduce sugar price by Tk 5 per kilogramme at the retail level three weeks after the revenue authority reduced import duty for raw and refined sugar in a bid to bring down the prices of the sweetener.
The government must implement economic policies that deal with the ongoing crisis
