Bangladesh gets lowest offer of $406.48/T in rice import tender

DHAKA, May 28 (Reuters) - Bangladesh received a lowest offer of $406.48 a tonne from Singapore-based Agrocorp International in a tender that opened on Sunday to import 50,000 tonnes of white rice, officials at the state grains buyer said.

Five traders competed for the tender issued by the Directorate General of Food at a time when local rice prices have reached record highs and state reserves are at 10-year lows. (Reporting by Ruma Paul)
