Export requirements
Description
Amended rules regarding the issuance of rice export certificates. Starting in 2015, the number of traders permitted to export rice will be capped at 150, instead of 100. In order to be eligible for rice export permits, traders will have to count on storage and milling facilities of their own and locate them in planned areas, with priority given to entities engaged in rice cultivation or partnered with rice farmers in their business. Traders that fail to ship 20 000 tonnes of rice over the course of two years will have their permits revoked..
