Global rice trade is projected to decline 4 percent in 2005
Global rice trade in 2005 is projected to decline 4 percent from a year earlier, the third consecutive year of declining global rice trade. Rice trade would be the smallest since 2000 and 12 percent below the 2002 record of 27.8 million tons. Declining Asian imports have accounted for the bulk of the weaker global rice trade since 2004. Record and near- record crops in major importing countries account for the decline in Asian rice imports. In 2005, weaker imports by China, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa are projected to more than offset larger imports by Indonesia, Nigeria, and Turkey.

Among the top six rice exporting countries--Thailand, Vietnam, India, China, the United States, and Pakistan--only the United States and Pakistan are projected to increase shipments in 2005. Thailand’s exports are projected to drop sharply from the 2004 record. India and Vietnam are projected to export less rice in 2005 as well. Among the medium-sized exporters, Argentina, Australia, Burma, and Uruguay are projected to expand exports in 2005.

Global rice trade in 2004 is forecast at 25.4 million tons, down almost 8 percent from 2003. In 2004, weaker imports by Bangladesh, Brazil, Indonesia, Nigeria, the Philippines, and Turkey more than offset greater imports by China, markets in the Caribbean, Iraq, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Sri Lanka. On the export side, big declines in exports from India, China, and the United States more than offset record exports from Thailand and larger shipments from Vietnam.
