According to the Myanmar Rice Federation (MRF), the price of domestic consumption high quality and low-quality rice has fallen slightly.
During these days, the high-quality Pawsan was priced at K47,000 per bag, whereas the price dropped to K 46,000 per bag, right now. Similarly, the price of rice for Kyarpyan moved in the range of K49,000-K50,000 per bag, but the price declined to K47,500-K48,000 per bag.
Likewise, the low-quality rice price was set at K26,500 per bag in earlier days, it has dropped to K25,000 per bag presently. The 90 days rice was being traded for K31,000 per bag earlier. Now, it is priced at only K30,000 per bag.
The decrease in the domestic price of rice is likely due to less demand for rice, said U Zaw Khaing, CEC of the Myanmar Rice Federation.
