Burmese government to buy rice at ‘fair price’

17 November 2011
New Delhi (Mizzima) – Due to a price drop for brown rice, the Burmese government 
will buy brown rice at a “fair price” and store the rice to prevent farmers 
from suffering losses.

However, the quantity of rice to be bought and the price are still being negotiated, 
according to the Myanmar Rice Industry Association (MRIA).
