Live Rice Index
Cambodia has become a significant rice exporter as production reached a record 5.6 million MTS (milled equivalent) in 2018. Most of Cambodia’s rice exports are destined for China and the countries have a Memorandum of Understanding for 400,000 MTS of annual milled rice exports. Although the E.U. was another major destination market for Cambodian rice, milled rice exports to the E.U. have been hampered by the introduction of tariffs on milled and whole grain imports from Cambodia in January 2019. The Cambodian Rice Federation is currently working with the Chinese government to reduce the costs of Cambodian production, processing and transport.
