Cambodia rice exports rise 7.6pc in Jan-June

PHNOM PENH, July 12 (Reuters): Cambodia exported 288,562 tonnes of rice in the first six months the year, an increase of 7.6 per cent compared with the same period last year, official data showed on Wednesday.

Exports to China, Cambodia's top export market, accounted for 94,720 tonnes, data from the Secretariat of One Window Service for Rice Export Formality, a joint private-government working group on rice, showed.

Cambodia had exported 268,190 tonnes of rice between January and June last year.

Rice prices in the world's top three exporters of the staple fell last week on demand, traders said, as well as a labor shortage following a mass exodus of migrant workers since June 23 from Thailand, the world's second-biggest exporter of the grain after India.
