Jamal Ahmed, the president of Bibirbazar Land Port Import-Exporters Association of Cumilla and the C&F Agents Association said the import and export activities through Cumilla Bibir Bazar port will be suspended for 6 days based on the decision of the traders of the two countries to share the joy of puja.
