Myanmar exports rose, chrysanthemum to Malaysia on trial run

A plantation of chrysanthemum is seen in Shan State (South).

Rose and chrysanthemums produced from the southern Shan State have been exported to the Malaysian market on a trial run, according to the Kanbawza Trade Centre.
At present, Aungban flower depot sent one carton of 600 fragrant and two cartons of 500 white and yellow chrysanthemums and roses to Malaysia by air by connecting with a company based in Yangon on a trail run. If the flowers are in good condition in the markets and air cargo goes well, flowers will be further exported for the long term.
Beyond the domestic markets, exports of Myanmar’s flowers will create more business opportunities for the growers.
Southern Shan State has favourable and suitable weather conditions for the flower plantation. The flowers are grown in Kalaw, Heho, Nyaungshwe and Aungban townships throughout the year, covering 800 to 1,000 acres.
The growers primarily cultivate roses, chrysanthemums, eugenia and lilies. They directly distribute them to the domestic markets or deliver them through the Aungban flower depot. The sales volume of various flowers is estimated to be over a million per month.
The prices stood at K2,000-K2,300 per 10 pieces of rose and K2,000-K2,200 per 10 Pieces of chrysanthemum, according to flower depots. – NN/GNLM
