Korea delays its decision on how it will open rice market

Korea has delayed a decision on how it will open its rice markets to allow more time to consult with farmers and the public, senior government officials said on Monday.

Deputy Trade Minister Choi Kyong-lim said in that a policy decision, originally expected in June, would come after a public hearing held by a parliamentary committee.

The timing of the hearing, which would follow previous rounds of public consultation, is yet to be set. “A cabinet meeting later today was set to discuss the policy decision but no decision will be unveiled as the government now wants to listen to more views from farmers,” said another government official.
