Myanmar has begun exporting rice to Kenya, a major east African trade hub.
Between 12 and 19 August, Myanmar exported 875 tons of rice to Kenya.
During that week, Myanmar exported 37,574 tons of rice to Malaysia, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Singapore, Russia, the Philippines, South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, Madagascar, Togo and European Union countries.
Rice export volume increased by 13,114 tons over the previous week.
Despite these overall increases, broken rice exports declined.
About 8,900 tons of broken rice with an estimated value of $2.2 million was exported to Viet Nam, Singapore, China, Djibouti, Zambia, Madagascar and European Union countries.
This represented a decline of 3,882 tons compared to the previous week.
Trade along the China and Bangladesh borders was estimated at 24,517 tons.
China remains Myanmar’s biggest rice export market.
