Rice exports grow as China buys lion’s share


Cambodia has exported 446,439 tonnes of milled rice in the first 10 months this year, a 17 percent increase compared to the same period last year, according to a report released yesterday by the Secretariat of One Window Service for Rice Export.

France is the second largest market, taking up 13 percent of rice exports, while Poland is third accounting for 8 percent with the United Kingdom fourth with a 5 percent share.
