PHNOM PENH, July 10 – Cambodia had exported a total of 338,654 tonnes of milled rice in the first half of 2024, earning a total of US$247.6 million, the Cambodia Rice Federation said in a news release on Tuesday, reported Xinhua. 

Some 51 companies had shipped milled rice to 63 countries and regions during the January-June period this year, the news release said, adding that China remained one of the main buyers of the commodity.

The kingdom exported 75,398 tonnes of milled rice to China during the period, making a gross revenue of US$47 million, it said.

Rice varieties the Southeast Asian country exported include fragrant rice, white rice, parboiled rice, and organic rice, among others, according to the news release.
