Iraq to buy more US rice
(MENAFN) An official of the Iraqi Grain Board announced that the government intends to buy rice on a quarterly basis and has reconfirmed its need to purchase 86,000 metric tons of rice per month to meet consumer demand, Delta Farm Press reported.

In April 2005, Iraq started to purchase U.S. rice and by the end of the year had purchased over 300,000 metric tons making that country the third-largest importer of U.S. rice in terms of value and the fourth-largest in terms of quantity. U.S rice gained roughly 35 percent of Iraq's total rice imports in 2005.

However, with additional informational efforts and promotion activities, U.S. rice exports will continue to grow, making it possible for Iraq to resume its position as the number one import market for U.S. rice."

U.S. rice exports to Iraq topped 500,000 metric tons in 1988 prior to the U.S. government-imposed embargo on exports to that market.
