Burma - The ban on rice exports was not officially lifted, there was a small amount of rice being exported
Even though the rice export ban has not been officially lifted, 4,199 metric tons (mt) of paddy (unmilled rice) and 1,000 mt of rice were exported to Bangladesh via border trade. The Government of Burma (GOB) stated on 29 May that it would allow the export of all crops produced on large-scale farms operated by selected entrepreneurs.

Although it was officially announced that MAPT (Myanma Agricultural Produce Trading), an agency of the Ministry of Commerce will no longer be engaged in rice exports except for broken rice and rice by products, it was learned that MAPT is now engaged in contracting rice export sales under the guise of G to G contracts (government to government contracts), with the private sector excluded from participating. It was learned that MAPT contracted 30,000 metric tons of Ehmata 25 percent with the Gambia. The price quotation in this contract is not known but since MAPT’s rice consists of of older stocks, the price quotation will be fixed according to the amount of yellow grains above 5 and 8 to 10 percent in the shipment. MAPT at the moment has about 50,000 metric tons of Ehmata 25 percent available for export.

30,000 mt of Ehmata 25 percent were contracted with the Gambia as G to G sales.

Compared to the previous month paddy and rice price increased, except for Superior quality rice. Ehmata rice increased by 4 percent, Inferior quality rice increased by 19 percent whereas Superior quality rice decreased by 2 percent respectively. Ehmata quality paddy price increased by 4 percent and Superior quality paddy prices increased by 7 percent compared to the previous month. Confirmed trade sources said that paddy and rice prices strengthened since the main wet season stocks were near depletion in the domestic market since, even though the second dry season harvest has commenced, there was a low volume of new crop entering into the market.
