Pakistan’s exports of rice to China rose 9.73 percent to 277.56 million dollars in the first five months of Financial Year 2021-2022, Commercial Counsellor of the Pakistani Embassy in Beijing Badar uz Zaman said.
Zaman said that currently broken rice, especially IRRI-6, IRRI-9, and semi or wholly milled rice are the main varieties of rice exported to China.
Badar uz Zaman said that Pakistan remains one of the major broken rice suppliers to China.
He said that, due to the recent relaxation of import restrictions by China, Pakistani rice exports have increased significantly. He believes that, given a few more years, Pakistan will become the largest rice exporter to China.
