RICE EXPORTS EXPECTED TO EXCEED TARGET

RICE EXPORTS EXPECTED TO EXCEED TARGET

Until October 6 of this fiscal year, Myanmar earned US$494.344 million from exports of more than 1.6 million tonnes of rice, which is equivalent to 80 per cent of the rice export target, according to the Commerce Ministry. 
 
Dr Soe Tun, the vice-chair of Myanmar Rice Federation said: “Myanmar has set a target of exporting up to two million tonnes of rice. Rice exports may exceed the target as we have already exported more than one million tonnes of rice. It will be the largest export volume this decade.”
 
Myanmar could export more than 1.4 million tonnes of rice in the 2012-2013 financial year, more than 1.2 million tonnes in 2013-2014, more than 1.8 million tonnes in 2014-2015, more than 1.4 million tonnes in 2015-2016, and more than 1.7 million tonnes in 2016-2017.
 
Myanmar exports rice to over 50 countries, but more than 70 per cent of rice goes to China, according to the Commerce Ministry. 
 
The MRF is selling rice to international buyers for the regular operation of the rice market, and is cooperating with the government so as to export rice under a government-to-government scheme.
