Expert Trade Analysis

The unexpected surge in rice imports from China from India, according to trade analysts, is due to an increase in the manufacturing of noodles and wine. Before the outbreak of Covid-19, China sent a delegation to India and visited numerous rice mills, according to the former president of the All India Rice Exporters Association, in order to promote the import of broken rice from India. Other causes for the increase in rice imports from India, according to experts, could be the rising price of maize.
