Myanmar is an agricultural country where rice industry is the most predominant segment in agriculture and agribusiness. Rice industry, in addition to its crucial aspect of food security, has been connected culturally, traditionally and socio-economically with majority of the population in Myanmar. As rice industry is very significantly important for Myanmar, there are national level associations formed by private sector to represent the various components of rice industry. In order to lead, give coordination and provide guidance to those associations for the sustainable development, effective and efficient coordination and cooperation, Myanmar Rice Federation was established in 2012. Myanmar Rice Federation shall promote democratic practices such as collective decision making by majority, respect and support to minority, freedom of speech and expression, exchange of news and views, respect the role and responsibility of every stakeholder.
