Despite a rumor that Government of Burma (GOB) may decide to permit the private sector to export rice, a rice export ban has not been lifted officially thus far. Post anticipates that this is unlikely to happen in the near future. The World Food Program (WFP) is reported to have procured 1,000 metric tons of rice from the Burmese private sector for its food aid projects. In the past, WFP was permitted to buy rice only from Myanma Agricultural Produce Trading, an agency under the Ministry of Commerce. The Ministry of Defense also obtained 40,000 metric tons of paddy in Irrawaddy Division and 78,000 mt of paddy in Pegu Division for army force rations.

According to Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation, the harvest of main wet season crop is almost completed. Meanwhile, about 45 percent of the dry season crop has been seeded against the target of 3.38 million acres.
