India exempts some nations from rice curbs for food security.

For the sake of food security, India has allowed certain rice shipments to Mauritius, Bhutan, and Singapore after the South Asian country imposed severe export restrictions to regulate domestic prices. According to a notification from the commerce ministry issued late on Wednesday, the top exporter in the world has committed to sell 79,000 tons of non-basmati white rice to Bhutan, 50,000 tons to Singapore, and 14,000 tons to Mauritius. India stated last month that it would permit the variety’s exports if requested to satisfy other nations’ security needs. The authorization draws attention to the situation of other countries who have been dependent on India for their rice supplies. Guinea’s trade minister has been to New Delhi to convince the administration of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to exempt the West African nation from the restrictions.
