The government is going to launch accredited laboratories soon to ensure the quality of agricultural goods to face the competitive global market.
Agriculture Minister Dr Abdur Razzaque said this on Sunday during an online discussion programme with vegetable and fruit exporters.
"The government aims to make the agriculture sector profitable through marketing and processing. For that, the agricultural export market must be expanded," he said.
Also, the government is working on reducing barriers to exports of agricultural goods and considering setting up the processing industry and finding ways to give more support to the entrepreneurs, Razzaque said.
"Those who are involved with the export and improving the quality of agricultural goods will get all the assistance," the minister added.
"Agriculture is vital for Bangladesh as it ensures food security and provides raw materials for different industries. We can export agricultural goods to the international market if we can produce safe vegetables and fruits and process them."
