Australian wheat share grows in south-east Asia


THE Australian wheat industry is looking to Myanmar as an increasingly important and valued market in the South-East Asian region.

Australia holds almost 90 per cent of the Myanmar wheat market, having doubled exports from 200,000 tonnes in 2012 to 400,000 tonnes, worth $117 million, in 2017.

To maintain Australia’s dominance of this market as it continues to grow, the Australian Export Grain Innovation Centre (AEGIC) has been laying the foundations of a long-lasting relationship with the flour milling industry in Myanmar.
