29,000+ tonnes of corn set for April shipment to Thailand

During the third week of April, more than 29,000 tonnes of corn seeds will be shipped to Thailand by sea. On 21 April, 19,300 tonnes were shipped, with an additional 2,700 tonnes and 7,150 tonnes scheduled for shipment on 22 and 25 April respectively.
Previously, most corn seeds were exported to Thailand via the Myawady border. However, due to difficulties in transport facilities, they are now being exported by sea.
Myanmar’s corn is typically exported to India, the Philippines, Viet Nam, Bangladesh, and various African countries. Thailand, Viet Nam, and Laos are frequent buyers of Myanmar corn due to the growing annual demand.
Myanmar produces approximately 2.3 million tonnes of corn annually, with domestic food production industries consuming 1.2 to 1.5 million tonnes of it. — TWA/TKO
