Myanmar exported more than 144,034 metric tons of rice and over 106,912 metric tons of broken rice in April, according to the Myanmar Rice Federation (MRF) on Saturday. The country exported that rice to 22 countries including Cameroon, China, Angola, the Philippines and Poland, while it exported the broken rice to eight countries including Belgium, China and Spain, official data showed. The MRF said Myanmar has shipped over 244,826 metric tons of those exported rice and broken rice in April via sea routes, while it has exported the rest 6,120 metric tons of those rice and broken rice via land border gates. During the country’s six-month interim budget period, which started on Oct. 1 last year and ended on March 31 this year, Myanmar exported more than 1.4m metric tons of rice and broken rice, official figures showed. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Southeast Asian country has been shipping most of its exported rice and broken rice via sea routes, said the MRF data.
