Intent on boosting exports

Myanmar draws up standards for 26 agricultural products

According to the Agriculture and Market Information Agency Monday, Myanmar has drawn up standards and specifications for 26 agricultural products to ensure them meet international standards and to bolster exports.

Standards of beans and pulses, watermelon, banana and pomelo are among those approved, while standards for durian, mangosteen, muskmelon, mango, onion, coconut and pineapple are being drafted for submission to the government for approval.

Myanmar is drafting the standards and specifications in both English and Myanmar languages with the help of local and foreign experts including those from the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), an official from the Consumer Affairs Department said.

As explained on xinhuanet.com, Myanmar's Union Parliament enacted the law on Standardization on July 3, 2014, aimed at helping promote export by improving the quality of production organizations and their products as well as their services.
