Cambodia allows resumption of white rice exports

Cambodia on Wednesday (May 13) allowed companies to resume exporting white rice from next week, after banning it for more than a month to ensure local food security during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The resumption was made at the request of the Cambodia Rice Federation and after the South-east Asian country has detected no new Covid-19 cases for a month.

“At the request of the Cambodia Rice Federation, the Royal Government decided to allow the resumption of white rice exports based on purchase orders from abroad, starting from May 20,2020 onwards,” Economy and Finance Minister Aun Pornmoniroth said in a statement.
