Trade, Food Aid and Food Security

This paper argues that trade liberalisation, which permitted the import of rice and wheat by the private sector, has enhanced national food security in Bangladesh. In particular, it highlights the positive contribution of rice imports from India in recent years of major production shortfalls. The paper also makes a case for a flexible rice trade policy to protect farmers from the potential disincentive effects of continued food aid and low-cost commercial imports.
