Rice exports rebound firmly in September

Cambodian rice exports soared by 54 percent year-on-year in September, after failing to meet last year’s levels for six consecutive months from March through August, according to the latest report by the Secretariat of One Window Service for Rice Exports.

Total rice exports in September amounted to 41,429 tonnes, compared to 26,969 tonnes one year earlier.

The surge in rice exports still leaves the cumulative total of rice exported since the start of the year – about 361,000 tonnes –two percent below the total shipped during the first nine months of 2015.
