Export quota

On 2 December 2009, Bolivia's Cabinet Council adopted Decree No. 0373 allowing the export of brown, semi-milled and wholly milled rice. The export quota for these types of rice is set at 30,000 tonnes. Further, these exports are only allowed upon submission of the certificate proving that the domestic market is well-supplied at fair prices. This measure enters into force as of the date of its publication in the Official Gazette, on 2 December 2009. 
 
On 14 March 2012, Bolivia's Cabinet Council adopted Decree No. 1163 increasing the export quota for brown, semi-milled and wholly milled rice from 30,000 to 60,000 tonnes. The submission of the certificate proving that the domestic market is well-supplied at fair prices is still required.
 
According to UN Comtrade, no country has trade on the stated tariff line exceeding 1 million USD in 2008. Hence, no countries are listed as affected trading partners.
