USDA has been working with Bangladesh in the area of agriculture trade since 2010. Evaluated phytosanitary capacity of staff of Department of Agricultural Extension, particularly of Plant Quarantine Wing through Phytosanitary Capacity Evaluation project in 2018. Based on this evaluation, and recognising the need of Bangladesh, USAID sanctioned the project entitled “Improving Phytosanitary Trade Compliance in Bangladesh” with Asia Pacific Association of Agricultural Research Institutes as implementing partner.

USDA through this and other projects facilitate the Government of Bangladesh to address SPS non compliance issues and enhance their Agricultural Trade. GOB is importing a large number of agricultural goods from the United States of America to cater to the needs of Bangladesh following the import quarantine regulations. Quarantine staff capacities built though this USDA project is to facilitate enhancing agricultural exports through improved phytosanitary compliance and also to safeguard Bangladesh agriculture from the exotic pests.

Broadly USDA aims to

  • Supporting trade policy by pursuing the development of rules-based international systems that facilitate global trade; and
  • Supporting trade capacity building and Food Security by enhancing partner countries’ capacity for agricultural development and participation in international trade.
  • This project is to improve phytosanitary trade compliance in Bangladesh. USDA is keen to help Bangladesh to improve its agricultural trade and all necessary support will be extended to Bangladesh in this context.
