S. Korea's Imports Of Steamed Rice Up 30.5% Last Year
South Korea's imports of steamed rice increased 30.5 per cent from a year earlier to 8,659 metric tons in the January-October period last year, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry said Monday.

Unlike uncooked rice, steamed rice, mainly from China, is an item of free import, and shipments have been increasing rapidly since its import was liberalized in 1996. Imports rose to 8,198 tons in 2003 from 6,370 tons in 2002.

The imports, worth US$3.03 million over the first 10 months of 2004, were up 34.7 per cent year-on-year from $2.25 million, according to the ministry.

"Because steamed rice can be mixed with other rice for sale at restaurants, despite being less tasty, shipments into the country hit the highest level last year," a ministry official said.

A 20-kilogram bag of steamed rice is trading at around 30,000 won ($29), while an equivalent amount of normal rice is priced at 45,000 won.
