YANGON, March 24 (Xinhua) -- The Myanmar government and private sectors are making efforts to export 2 million tons of rice in Fiscal Year 2017-2018, official media reported Friday.
In Fiscal Year 2016-2017, a total of 1.5 million tons of rice has been exported as of mid-March.

Meanwhile, the country's agricultural products including rice and broken rice have gained new international markets like Africa due to efforts exerted by the government and private sectors.
