Vietnam’s rice export to hit 7 million tonnes this year

Vietnam is working towards the target of exporting 7 million tonnes of rice this year, heard a forum held by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) on November 19.

Experts at the forum shared the view that prices of Vietnamese rice will continue to stay high as economic and political uncertainties will push up food demand. They, therefore, suggested exporters utilise opportunities in market access and expansion.

Vietnam’s rice export to hit 7 million tonnes this year.

If the export volume is maintained at over 400,000 tonnes each month in the remaining two months, the whole year’s export volume of the staple will reach from 6.8-7 million tonnes, they said.

Le Thanh Hoa, deputy head of the Agro Processing and Market Development Authority (AgroTrade), asked businesses to pay due attention to China, saying although it is a big and promising market of Vietnamese farm produce, the country has made changes in import requirements, from plant quarantine to packaging, tracking of origin and growing area codes.

A total of 22 Vietnamese firms have been licensed to ship rice to China, and Vietnam has proposed China expand the list.

Apart from China, the European Union (EU) and the UK have also remained Vietnam’s important markets, experts said, suggesting exporters tighten their connectivity with purchasing and processing units to satisfy technical requirements of importers, thus better utilising free trade agreements (FTAs) and export quotas.
