Burma: Rice Trade - Monthly

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BM2021-0015

In April 2021, Burma’s rice exports are forecast to decline overall due to the long Burmese New Year Holidays and border gate closures between China and Burma to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Domestic prices for Emata 25 percent broken rice are forecast to decrease in late April accordingly and remain low until harvest time, while superior quality Shwe Bo Pawsan rice prices remain unchanged due to low demand by local consumers.
