Panama to Host World Rice Congress 2011
The country was chosen as the host for the World Rice Congress in June 2011.
Monday, November 22, 2010
This event will bring together more than 500 rice farmers and traders from 40 countries and promote new technologies and machinery for the rice industry.
A court ruling has annulled a government decree which set a minimum price for the grain, forcing the government to pay for the material damage that this rule has caused.
Local production of the grain is increasing and approaching self-sufficiency figures, while prices are stable.
In the last 5 years the pricing system in force has transferred more than $390 million from the pockets of consumers to rice producers.
The country will import 1.3 million quintals in order to compensate for current low crop yields.
