Export ban

The Ministry of Trade and Industry extended a ban on rice exports for an additional year from 17 September 2011 to October 2012.
The Ministry of Trade and Industry on 21 September 2010 extended a ban on rice exports for an additional year until 1 October 2011. The ban was initially imposed in March 2008 and extended periodically thereafter and was supposed to end on 1 October 2010. The ban was meant to secure the availability of affordable rice on the local market.
 
Subsequently, the ministry of trade and industry on 16 November 2009 said that 15 companies had been given rice export licences. The 15 companies are to export a total of 13,950 tonnes of rice between 1 December 2009 and 1 January 2010.
 
The original Ministerial Decree banning the export of rice in 2008 was number 450. In order to determine the trading partners, the data prior to the year, during which the ban was introduced, were used.
