Vietnam Trade Officials Advise Exporters To Stockpile Rice
Hanoi, Vietnam's Ministry of Trade is advising rice exporters to begin stockpiling rice to fulfill export contracts, state- run media reported Tuesday.
The whole of the summer-autumn harvest from Vietnam's Mekong region will be set aside for export, as stores of export rice are already limited, the Vietnam News reported. Roughly 95% all export rice comes from the Mekong region.
Between January and the end of May, Vietnam exported more than 1.9 million metric tons of rice, earning $359 million, a 47.4% increase in tonnage and a 28.3% increase in revenue, the newspaper reported.
At 8.4 million tons, the last winter-spring harvest in the Mekong region was down 200,000 tons from the previous crop, the newspaper said.
The trade ministry is planning to export at least 3.4 million tons of rice this year, with Asia buying half, followed by the Middle East, Africa, Europe and the Unites States, the state-run newspaper said.
In 2002, Vietnam shipped 3.25 million tons of rice earning $610 million. In 2001, it shipped 3.54 million tons, but only earned $544 million.
