He reiterated that Pakistan and Iran have cultural, historic, linguistic and religious commonalities. "There are tremendous opportunities to improve the trade relations between the two countries; sanctions have now been lifted by the world powers and Pakistan can capitalize on lucrative incentives offered by Iranian government in sectors like energy, pharmaceutical, auto and information technology,‖ Honardoust added. In relevant remarks in late December, Pakistani Ambassador to Iran Asif Khan Durrani called for the broadening of trade relations between Islamabad and Tehran. "There is a tremendous scope to strengthen trade and economic relations between Pakistan and Iran," Durrani said during a visit to Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI). The Pakistani ambassador in Tehran was in Pakistan to explain huge trade potentials in Iran for Pakistani businessmen. Durrani pointed to the hurdles in trade between Iran and Pakistan, and said, "The unavailability of banking channel is one of the biggest reasons of limited trade between the two countries; through exploiting trade and investment opportunities, mutual trade volume could easily touch new heights."

Lose weight, eat rice, find love... JANUARY 12, 2017 17:10 IST

Shonali Muthalaly

Let 2017 be the year you expand your horizons when it comes to food. Lose weight. Quit smoking. Exercise more. Do good deeds. Find the love of my life. I‘m willing to bet at least one of these featured on your list of new year resolutions. According to Statistic Brain, an online community focused on analytics, those were among the top 10 resolutions this year. Dig a little deeper and it‘s evident that these are the top resolutions every year. The more things change, the more they stay the same. I was going to attribute that quote to Jon Bon Jovi, when I realised his lyrics borrow from Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr‘s original French quote, ‗plus ca change plus c‘est la meme chose‘. There you go: you learn something new everyday. Which brings me to the point of this column — Want to eat better this year? Expand your horizons. Since everyone loves listicles, I‘m making this easy by giving you three ways to lose weight, eat well and look good. (To find the love of your life, however, you‘ll need a different article. Or, Tinder.)

Daily Global, Regional and Local Rice E-Newsletter in India you live, try turnip greens, amaranth leaves, mustard leaves and drumstick greens, just to name a few. Most of us are guilty of an abbreviated rice vocabulary, limited to basmati, ponni and fried, even though we live in a country rich with traditional, not to mention delicious, versions of this staple. Let‘s make this the year of rice. About 50 years ago, India replaced more than 1.5 lakh heritage varieties with high-yielding strains of rice. However, thanks to national movements such as the Save our Rice Campaign (SoRC), there‘s an alternative to this homogeneity of taste. According to the SoRC, about 1,000 varieties are preserved via Indigenous Rice Diversity Blocks, which are fields filled with a patchwork of paddy. So far, SoRC has facilitated blocks like this in Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, West Bengal, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand. The one at Thanal Agro Ecology Centre (TAEC) in Panavally (Wayanad district of Kerala) got a lot of attention recently when Midhun Raveendranath‘s gorgeous photo captured a kaleidoscope of 219 shades of paddy. In total, the campaign has collected 567 traditional varieties of scented, medicinal, deep water and dry land rices over a decade. Make an effort to find and taste some of them. Learn You need a deeper connection with food than watching Tasty videos on Facebook. Make an effort to learn more about what you eat. If your meals are limited to dal, mattar paneer and potato fry, it‘s time to learn some new recipes from the Gujarati neighbours, your Bengali boss or Naga roommate. We‘re lucky to live in a country with a plethora of cuisines, as well as plenty of family, friends and colleagues who are happy to show you how to cook the food of their community. Sure, you can whip up a pesto pasta, make pizza from scratch and roll maki sushi. Use this year to learn how to make a competent Kashmiri yakhni, Goan vindaloo or Maharashtrian thalipeeth.

Daily Global, Regional and Local Rice E-Newsletter Cooking also teaches you respect, both for food and ingredients. Spend one day slaving behind a hot stove and you will be less casual about wastage. Resolve to eat a home-cooked meal more often. And to conquer at least one regional dish every month. You‘ll be healthier by the end of the year. (You‘ll also be more popular once your friends realise that your Bengali prawn malai curry is better than anything they can order at a restaurant.) Challenge Eat one dozen new things this year — at the very least. You could set simple targets — mushrooms, beetroot, pumpkin. All the things you hated as a kid, and, therefore, avoided ever since. A friend of mine is a strong believer in the old adage that your tastebuds evolve every seven years. Whether you believe it or not, it‘s a useful excuse to break out of a rut. It‘s tough to be a conservative eater when you‘re a food writer. Last year alone, I ate freshly shucked oysters, a fiery ant chutney and fried spiders. I didn‘t like any of them, but that‘s not the point. As time progresses, I find myself more open to appreciating new flavours — and, as the world gets smaller, that‘s a useful tool. Being willing to experiment also means I get to discover flavours I love, like delicate Japanese matcha, Korean gochujang and smoked pork from Nagaland http://www.thehindu.com/life-and-style/food/Lose-weight-eat-rice-find-love.../article17028829.ece

Daily Global, Regional and Local Rice E-Newsletter realized in this year," Supryanto remarked here on Friday.

Supryanto replaced Maruf as the chief of Bulogs Central Sulawesi branch a month ago, as the latter had been appointed as the Bulog head for Maluku Province. In the past few weeks, Supryanto said he had visited numerous rice production centers in Central Sulawesi to gain first-hand information regarding the potential of rice procurement during the harvest season in 2017. "I have visited rice production centers in the districts of Parigi Moutong and Sigi," he said, adding that following his visit, he was optimistic that 35,000 tons of rice would be procured.According to Supryanto, Parigi Moutong has extensive rice fields that are expected to be a major contributor to fulfilling the nations rice demand.Similarly, Donggala, Banggai, Poso, Sigi, Tolitoli, and Morowali are other widespread rice cultivation areas in Central Sulawesi. "We certainly hope there would be no pests since if the problem occurs, it will naturally reduce the production of farmers," Supryanto added.

Consignments of ‗plastic

rice‘ reportedly produced in China and exported to various markets on the African continent are emerging in Liberia. though the government is taking proactive actions to avert this threat.One of the nations penetrated recently by the dubious commodity is Nigeria, to where over 350 bags were exported, but seized by the country‘s security apparatuses.In an effort to avert the importation of this ‗plastic rice‘ on the Liberia market, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MOCI) has begun the awareness and sensitization of the plastic rice across the country through the media and its inspectors.According to a press release issued yesterday by the Director of Public Affairs, Mitchell Jones, the ministry is concerned about this information on the social media and other platforms, which there have been attempts to obtain clarity from various trading partners.

Rice and More than 100 Others Go "On the Record" for Ag Trade with Cuba By Peter Bachmann

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Yesterday, USA Rice, along with more than 100 state and national agriculturerelated organizations and agribusinesses sent a letter to President-elect Trump and his team asking his administration to prioritize the removal of private financing and trade barriers for agricultural commodities and equipment. "With less than one week until the Trump administration takes the reins, it's important that the agricultural community voices its support for policies that will allow us to sell our crops and products in a free and open market," said Ben Mosely, vice president of government affairs for USA Rice. Mosely added, "Trade with Cuba is not just a priority for U.S. rice but the dozens of other organizations and businesses that represent nearly every sector of our vital industry that signed-on in support of reduced trade and financing barriers for agricultural commodities." While the needed fixes fall under the jurisdiction of Congress, the letter asks the administration to consider "progress made in normalizing relations with Cuba, and also solicit [the administration's] support for the agricultural business sector to expand trade with Cuba to help American farmers and our associated industries."

The groups highlighted the fall of the U.S. as Cuba's go-to for food, "the U.S. has fallen from its position as the number one supplier of agricultural products from 2003 to 2012, to now the number five supplier after the European Union, Brazil, Argentina, and Vietnam. The U.S. needs to be number one again. Especially given many of Cuba's imports, including rice, poultry, dairy, soy, wheat, and corn make up more than 70 percent of what they import and they're all grown right here in the U.S. by hardworking American farmers." The letter was organized in part by USA Rice and the dozens of state agriculture organizations and businesses that make up Engage Cuba's state councils for Cuba.

Fortified rice needs new networks to reach wider population By Su Phyo Win | Friday, 13 January 2017

Fortified rice is being sold by local firms across the Yangon and Ayeyarwaddy regions, but help from social and relief welfare organisations will be crucial in order to reach more remote areas, U Myo Myint Aung, from global health non-profit PATH. U Myo Myint Aung is project director for PATH‘s fortified rice project in Myanmar, which aims to use fortified rice to lower the incidence of micronutrient deficiencies among the population.The project, which involves establishing supply chains and distribution channels, was started in 2013 and brought fortified rice onto the market in March last year. It was supposed to have finished at the end of 2015, but has been extended through to 2018, U Myo Myint Aung said.Fortified rice is high in micronutrients and vitamins, and is produced during the milling process. PATH has found a fortified grain producer, blender-fabricator and is reaching out to rice millers. But U Nay Lin Zin, secretary general of the Myanmar Rice Millers Association, said that many millers are hesitant because of the complex processes involved in producing fortified rice. Ensuring better distribution and production is crucial, as fortified rice is important not just for disaster affect areas but for the whole country, he added.―Urban and rural populations need the nutrition [in fortified rice] as a national requirement,‖ he said. ―We‘ll try to cover all [locations] and consumers, through retail and wholesale markets.‖

Daily Global, Regional and Local Rice E-Newsletter U Myo Myint Aung said that using existing networks for social welfare and relief services would help distribution. PATH has already help make fortified rice available in retail outlets. Last August, the fortified rice produced with PATH‘s help received certification from Myanmar‘s Food and Drug Administration, and is now sold in well-known chains like City Mart, said U Nay Lin Zin. ―But the price is 10pc to 15pc higher compared to ordinary rice, because packaging and distribution costs are higher,‖ he said.Myanmar consumes more rice per day than almost any other country in the world, according to PATH chief executive Steve Davis. ―Milk, salt, oil and bread are still fortified in Europe and the US,‖ he said at a speech at a dinner for social sector work in Yangon last week. ―Now there two varieties of fortified rice available in Myanmar.‖ The Livelihoods and Food Security Trust Fund (LIFT) – a multi-donor fund established in 2009 to improve the lives of smallholder farmers and landless people in rural Myanmar – and the United Nation‘s office for Project Services have also supported PATH‘s fortified rice program. http://www.mmtimes.com/index.php/business/24535-fortified-rice-needs-new-networks-to-reach-widerpopulation.html

No plastic in Lisa’s rice Samuda says samples showed no evidence of MP’s claim Saturday, January 14, 2017

HANNA... had claimed in a 50-second video uploaded to Instagram on Wednesday that she had a recent experience with ―plastic‖ rice

Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries Karl Samuda says no evidence of contamination has been found in the samples of rice submitted by Member of Parliament (MP) for St Ann South Eastern Lisa Hanna earlier this week. Hanna had claimed in a 50-second video uploaded to Instagram on Wednesday that she had a recent experience with ―plastic‖ rice. She said the rice was bought at a ―well-known bulk place that is more international than local‖, and that the rise had failed to cook.―It cyaah cook, all we can do is roll it into a ball. We actually thought that the rice was burnt because we left it on the stove,‖ Hanna said, adding, ―We even added some coconut milk [to] it [but it] won‘t shell. [However], you can roll it, you can bounce it, you can do a number of things with it.‖

Daily Global, Regional and Local Rice E-Newsletter In recent weeks, reports of plastic rice have circulated in the media, forcing the agriculture ministry to conduct sampling, but so far the Bureau of Standards Jamaica (BSJ) has said no

evidence of the fake rice has been found in lab tests. Yesterday, Samuda said separate samples of cooked and uncooked rice from Hanna were sent to the National Compliance and Regulatory Authority on Wednesday and Thursday but that both samples submitted to the BSJ for thorough testing had showed no evidence of plastic or unusual behaviour. ―The samples were subjected to starch, moisture content, floating and flame tests as well as Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy analyses. Ms Hanna has been notified of the results of the tests,‖ a ministry release said. The Internet is littered with videos of fake rice and other food being manufactured with nonedible material in at least two Asian states. Countries such as Nigeria, as recently as December last year, reported seizing shipments of large quantities of fake rice that were being smuggled across its borders.

Daily Global, Regional and Local Rice E-Newsletter While videos and news of fake rice have been circulating on the Internet for some time now, recent claims of fake rice locally have made many Jamaicans wary of consuming imported rice in particular. There were even fears that there could be a shortage of rice in the country when the news broke, but the Government said imports from Guyana and Suriname would be allowed into the market. Some shipments on the ports were held before clearance. Up to mid-December Samuda stressed that there was no evidence of any contamination of plastic in the samples tested, and that the Government was considering taking steps to have all packages of rice labelled before distribution for sale.Jamaica imports rice from China, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, India, the United States, Vietnam, Thailand, and Suriname. http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/news/No-plastic-in-Lisa-s-rice_86537
