International companies express their desire to buy Iraqi "amber"
Economy News - Baghdad
The Ministry of Agriculture revealed, on Monday, that it received requests from international companies to buy Iraqi rice, amber and jasmine, indicating that rice production for the current year is a qualitative shift in the history of Iraq.
Ministry spokesman Hamid Al-Nayef said in a statement called "Al-Iqtisad News", that "despite the Ministry's tendency to adopt the distribution of rice on the local market, it has received offers from international companies to import Iraqi rice and the project is still under study."
Al-Nayef added that "the Ministry of Trade is required to establish new silos in order to absorb the surplus of rice, which will guarantee about 60% of the local production initially, and at 5,000 dunums of agricultural and quality items such as amber and jasmine."
He continued, "Iraq has achieved self-sufficiency and has recorded a surplus in tomato and dates crops, as well as fish and some other materials." He called on investors to "set up cold stores to save and export vegetables and increase private investment in agricultural manufacturing industries."
