Myanmar has shipped over 180,000 tonnes of green gram to external markets with an estimated value of over US$118 million as of 14 June in the current financial year 2024-2025, beginning 1 April, according to the Ministry of Commerce.
Myanmar sent 179,550 tonnes of green gram worth $117 million to international trade partners by sea and 2,442.5 tonnes worth $1.5 million to neighbouring countries through border posts over the past two months.
Myanmar aimed to export 600,000 tonnes of green gram to external markets last FY, with 150,000 tonnes in each batch, the Ministry of Commerce announced.
Yet, it fell short of the export target of 600,000 tonnes for green gram in the financial year 2023-2024 (April-March), with only 500,000 tonnes being exported, the Ministry of Commerce’s statistics showed.
Myanmar conveyed around 503,970 tonnes of green gram worth $336.89 million to foreign markets in the past FY 2023-2024 beginning 1 April, according to the Ministry of Commerce.
Myanmar primarily exports black grams, green grams and pigeon peas. The green gram is exported to China, India, the Netherlands, Ireland, England and Germany through maritime and border trade channels.
There is a wide range of foreign markets for Myanmar’s green gram. More than 8,000 tonnes of green gram are sent yearly to the European Union member countries.
The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation and the Ministry of Commerce have agreed to export the green grams to European countries for bean sprouts starting in 2015. — NN/EM
