COMMENTS: This was the first sale of the season which took place at the Bangabandhu Conference Hall, World Trade Center, Chittagong after an interval of two months where strict social distancing was maintained. However, owing to curtailment of movement because of the prevailing COVID-19 epidemic, out-station buyers could not be present. Inspite of these constraints, a good market prevailed whereby the bulk of the offerings could be disposed off at an average of Tk.218.79. Both Blenders and Loose tea buyers were operating in good strength for the best teas on offer. However, Plain teas particularly BLFs were mostly withdrawn owing to lack of bids.
Dusts sold well.
