Cambodia lifts ban on rice exports

Cambodia has lifted its ban on rice exports as concerns mount of an oversupply in the domestic market.

The ban was initially imposed on April 5 due to fears of food supply shortages amid the Covid-19 pandemic, although it allowed contracts to be honoured.

The government announced yesterday that the private sector could resume the export of white rice to the international market from May 20. This comes after a request to lift the ban was made by the Cambodia Rice Federation (CRF).
