Burma: Rice Trade - Monthly

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BM2022-0011

Post forecasts Burmese rice exports lower in June due to reduced supplies in the domestic market and higher domestic prices. The Burmese government continues making changes to its trade and foreign exchange rate policies that are impeding trade. Domestic prices for Emata increased in June due to lower supplies in the domestic market, high transportation costs, and the resumption of border trade with China. Domestic prices for Shwe Bo Pawsan remained unchanged due to slow domestic demand.
