A coordination meeting was held in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday to discuss 100,000-tonne rice export to Bangladesh under the bilateral agreement between the two governments.

Union Minister for Commerce Dr Pwint San said the Myanmar Rice Federation would manage the export of high-quality rice by forming a task force participated by the relevant ministries and associations.

Union Minister for Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation U Tin Htut Oo discussed the importance of the export sector to promote the livelihood of farmers, while food security is required during the COVID-19 pandemic. He also said some trade restrictions would be released for the rice export to Bangladesh.
