Burma: Rice Trade - Monthly

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BM2021-0027

Post forecasts Burma’s rice exports lower in September due to the continued closure of all border checkpoints along the Burma-China border, poor demand from African and EU countries, and high shipping costs. Domestic prices for both Emata and Shwe Bo Pawsan will likely increase in September due to tighter supplies from reduced rice mill operations and transportation challenges due to COVID-19.
