The rice exports from Pakistan exceeded USD 225.52 million in the first four months of 2022, as per the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China (GACC). China imported more than 601,574.052 tons of mixed rice – which was a 12.45% increase from the same period last year when 534,946.42 tons were imported.
The import of broken rice increased by a whopping 40.27%. Michael (Gao), head of sales at Hefei Meyer Optoelectronic Technology Inc discussed how that Chinese technology has helped Pakistan increase rice processing yield and maintain high quality.
Michael added, “Almost 1,000 Meyer colour sorters are used in Pakistan. Our sales volume has increased every year”. He also discussed how almost all major Pakistani rice exporters to China used their sorting machines and showed satisfaction with their products, concluding that the increase in sales was an indication of the increasing exports to China.
Currently, 53 rice companies in Pakistan are on the approval list of the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China – and if the number were to increase, so would the exports.
In 2021, Pakistan’s exports of rice to China amounted to a total of almost USD 381.24 million. Pakistani businesses in textile, leather, surgical and medical equipment, and rice remain upbeat on trade with China, as they expect large demand for these goods in the coming years, particularly in the west China region.
