Burma: Rice Trade - Monthly

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BM2021-0017

In May 2021, Burma’s rice exports are forecast to decline with the expectation of the continued closure of Burma-China border checkpoints to prevent the spread of COVID-19. However, the official rice exports are expected to increase due to the appreciation of foreign currencies against the Myanmar Kyat. Domestic prices for Emata 25 percent broken rice and superior quality Shwe Bo Pawsan rice are forecast to increase in May due to increased local demand.
