YANGON, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar exported more than 1.35 million tons of beans and pulses in nearly 10 months of the 2022-23 fiscal year beginning in April last year, according to the Ministry of Commerce on Tuesday.
From April 1 last year to Jan. 20 this year, the country earned over 1.05 billion U.S. dollars from the exports of beans and pulses, the ministry's figures showed.
During the period, Myanmar shipped over 1.18 million tons of beans and pulses via sea routes and transported over 170,804 tons of beans and pulses through land borders, the ministry's data said.
The Southeast Asian country usually does most of its foreign trade through sea routes as it has a long coastline. It conducts border trade with China, Thailand, Bangladesh and India.
Beans and pulses are Myanmar's second-most cultivated crops after rice and account for 33 percent of the country's total agricultural production.
Myanmar exports beans and pulses to China, India and the European countries.
