Everything You Wanted to Know About Cambodian Rice Exports (Latest from Jan 2019)

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Tue Feb 12, 2019 8:08 pm

Cambodian rice is in the news because of the recent EU decision to impose import taxes. Here's the lowdown on the Cambodian rice export figures from Fresh News today.

Cambodian Rice Exports in January 2019 Decreases 5%
12/02/19 19:09
Phnom Penh (FN), Feb. 12 - Cambodia exported nearly 60,000 tons of rice in first month of 2019, a decrease of 5% compared to January 2018, according to a report of Secretariat of One Window Service for Rice Export on Tuesday.

Data from the Secretariat of One Window Service for Rice Export Formality showed that Cambodia exported over 20,000 tonnes to Europe, accounted for 40% of the total export, and nearly 20,000 tons to China.

The EU has begun to impose import taxes on rice of Cambodia and Myanmar, which are exported to 28 EU Member States, for a period of three years from 18 January 2019-2021.

The tax will cost Cambodia 175 euros per ton in the first year, 150 euros the second year, and 125 euros the third year.

In 2018, Cambodia exported nearly 300,000 tons of rice to Europe, an equivalent to 43% of the total export volume of 630,000 ton. Commerce experts claimed that Cambodia is likely to lose $50 million per annum.

Not losing anything, not making as much. There is a difference.

Despite loss of duty-free status, Cambodia’s rice exports see 6% increase
| #AsiaNewsNetwork
Published 5 April 2019

(Phnom Penh Post/ANN) — Despite losing its duty-free export status in the EU, the Kingdom’s rice exports saw a six per cent increase in the first quarter of this year compared to the same period last year, according to figures released by the Secretariat of One Window Service for Rice Export Formality.

Industry insiders said the increase is due to a rise in exports to China which offset the dip in EU sales.

The Secretariat’s report showed that rice exports in the first three months of 2019 reached 170,821 tonnes, a six per cent increase on the 161,115 tonnes exported in the same period last year.

Cambodia Rice Federation vice-president Hun Lak attributed the rise to new quotas implemented by the Chinese government that allowed the importing of up to 400,000 tonnes of tariff-free rice from Cambodia.

“The rise of exports is a result of China’s increased quotas, which encourage exporters to focus on the Chinese market,” Lak said.

Prime Minister HE met with Chinese President Xi Jinping during a four-day visit to Beijing in January, saying Xi had agreed to import 400,000 tonnes of rice from Cambodia this year as part of the plan to increase bilateral trade between the two countries to $10 billion by 2023.

Cambodia among top 5 exporters of organic rice to EU
published : 4 Sep 2019 at 19:26
Cambodia was the fifth largest exporter of organic rice to the European Union last year, with local companies confident exports will continue to rise in the coming years.

Key insiders said demand for organic rice in the EU and other key markets like the United States, Australia, and China is soaring as consumers become more environmentally and health-conscious, the Khmer Times reported on Wednesday.

According to figures from the EU shared with the Cambodia Rice Federation, Cambodia exported 8,467 tonnes of organic rice to the bloc last year, representing 3.9% of all EU organic rice imports.

The US was the largest exporter of organic rice to the EU, accounting for almost 70% of the market. It was followed by Pakistan and India, with 10% and 9%, respectively. Thailand came in at number four with 4.9% of the market, or 10,522 tonnes in exports.

Local rice exporters told the Khmer Times that the amount of Cambodian organic rice shipped to the bloc has increased this year.

About 90% of all Cambodian exports of organic rice to the EU last year belonged to Amru Rice Cambodia.

Kann Kunthy, vice president of Amru Rice, on Tuesday said the company has entered contract farming schemes with about 5,000 farmers and this year it aims to export 20,000 tonnes of organic rice to foreign markets, 80% to 90% of which will be sent to the EU.

“We are prioritising the production of organic rice and rice produced under the Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP). These rice varieties make Cambodia more competitive against countries like Thailand, Vietnam, and India,” Kunthy said.

China’s rice import quota to be met: CRF
The Cambodia Rice Federation is confident the Kingdom will reach its milled rice export quota in the Chinese market, with the association emboldened by last week’s visit of China’s largest food processor, COFCO.

The Kingdom was unable to meet the quota last year, shipping just 170,000 tonnes out of the 300,000 allowed.

This year, however, things will be different, argued Lun Yeng, CRF secretary-general. Mr Yeng said that a delegation from Chinese firm COFCO arrived in Cambodia last week to “understand the situation” of rice production in Cambodia.

“During the meeting, we talked about the milled rice quota because Cambodia was unable to export all 300,000 tonnes allowed last year,” Mr Yeng said, adding that, “This year, we will increase exports and reach 300,000 tonnes.”

In January last year, Cambodia and China signed an agreement expanding the amount of Cambodian milled rice that Chinese firms can purchase to 300,000 tonnes.

Mr Yeng told Khmer Times that that quota will soon be raised. “After reaching 300,000 tonnes in exports, we will begin working towards the new target for next year: 400,000 tonnes.”
