PM: Do more for rice sector
Posted: Apr 22, 2017

Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday urged more to be done to help the country’s beleaguered rice sector and called on public and private enterprises to develop climate-resistant high yielding rice varieties, find more export markets and invest in value-added agro-industries.

Mr. Hun Sen made the call at the closing ceremony of the annual meeting of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries at the Peace Palace.

“Cambodia’s milled rice exports are facing difficulties in international markets and we have in stock more than three million [metric] tons,” said Mr. Hun Sen.

The premier also warned millers not to mix high-quality Cambodian rice with cheaper rice.

“Maintaining the quality of rice has to be a priority so that we do not lose our export markets,” he added.

Mr. Hun Sen called on both the public and private sectors to work together to develop new high-yielding rice varieties that are also able to survive extreme climatic events.

“We must be able to develop our own rice-seed varieties that suit climate patterns here in Cambodia and to meet current market demand,” he said.

In calling for new export markets for milled rice, Mr. Hun Sen said: “There is room in both the established and new markets for greater export growth. There is also room for improvement in the production, packaging, and marketing of Cambodia’s rice.”

Mr. Hun Sen said quality services and reliable products will serve the rice industry better over time.

“We have to promote investment from the private sector in all value-added processing chains in agro-industries that are in special economic zones in order to export agricultural products,” he added.

Cambodia’s milled rice exports only grew by a dismal 0.7 percent last year compared with 2015 and this was the lowest since 2014, according to government figures released in January.

“Last year Cambodia only exported 542,144 tons of milled rice and the lowest exports were in the first quarter of the year and December,” said Hean Vanhan, director-general of the agriculture department at the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

In the first quarter of last year, a severe drought affected rice production and through the year rice millers had been complaining of the flow of low-grade cheaper rice into the country from Vietnam.

Last March, rice millers and exporters wrote to the government urging intervention due to stiff competition in export markets as well as domestic ones. In the letter, they said they were facing a cash crunch due to a flood of low-grade rice from Vietnam while stressing that bankruptcy was widespread among farmers, millers and exporters alike.

In late September, the government responded by making a $27 million loan to rice millers to purchase paddy rice from farmers, in a bid to prevent rice prices from falling further.

Last month, the EU commission announced that Cambodia’s milled rice industry must eradicate the use of the fungicide Tricyclazole by June and that exports of Cambodian rice must not contain more than 0.01 milligrams of the chemical per kilogram this year or face bans.

The EU is the biggest market for Cambodia’s milled rice exports.
