As far as Xinhua International Client knows, this is the first time for Laos to export rice to China, which was only for small-scale border trade previously. Because China Certification and Inspection Group has never had an office in Laos, China Certification and Inspection Group Cambodia Co., Ltd. specially sent staff to Laos for rice inspection. It was only after inspection that rice could be packed for shipment.
