A drop in demand from Chinese merchants has led to falling market prices for Japanese white sesame in Mandalay, according to brokers.
Chinese merchants paid K145,000 per bag of white sesame last year, compared with K120,000 per bag this year, the brokers said.
“Myanmar and Vietnam are the main exporters of white sesame to China. Depending on import volume from Vietnam, Chinese merchants offer sesame from Myanmar,” brokerage owner U Soe Win Myint from Mandalay said.
At present, white sesame from Kyaukse, Yesagyo, Magway, Natmauk, Taungdwingyi and Aunglan flows into the Mandalay market.–Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-printing House)
