Black cardamom to enter Chinese market

Kachin State is set to export black cardamom, a spice native to its mountainous region, to China as a new export item. This spice, with existing demand in China for both culinary and medicinal purposes, will be showcased by MSME entrepreneurs from Kachin State at the 20th China ASEAN Expo in Nanning from 16 to 19 September.
U Tun Tun Naing, the central executive member of the MSME Entrepreneurs Association, highlighted that exporting black cardamom to China as a new item would generate local employment opportunities and boost trade volume.
Black cardamom thrives in swampy soil and is already popular in Kachin State as both a spice and medicine. The Kachin State Department of Agriculture estimates that the region produces 15,000 tonnes of black cardamom plants, primarily for the domestic market. — MNA/KZL
