Cambodia has agreed to sell fragrant rice to Brunei, with the first shipment expected to arrive in Bandar Seri Bagawan in November.
A government-to-government agreement signed in Phnom Penh last Saturday sends Cambodian rice to Brunei markets for the first time. It calls for Baitong Rice Export Co and the Federation of Cambodian Rice Millers Association to deliver 3,000 tonnes of fragrant rice to Brunei, the Phnom Penh Post reported on Tuesday.
The price was set at US$1,020 per tonne. Thailand's current price for the rough equivalent, known as khao hom mali or jasmine rice, is $1,124 per tonne, according to the US Department of Agriculture.
