Viet Nam: world's second largest rice exporter
Business Finance, Viet Nam
Ha Noi, Dec. 15 (VNA) - Viet Nam has so far this year exported 3.9 million tonnes of rice, remaining the world's second largest rice exporter.

The increased position of the country's rice in the world market was attributed to the Government's policies to invest in the key rice growing area, the Mekong Delta, and the application of high-yield and quality rice strains.

Viet Nam has built a strong rice propagation network with nearly 3,000 rice strain production establishments in the Mekong Delta. Each year, two rice strains are selected and added to the export rice strain categories.

Dr. Bui Chi Buu, Director of the Mekong Delta Rice Institute, said that Viet Nam applied high quality and perfumed rice strains (IR 64, OM 1490, ST1, ST3, Jasmine) into the production of rice for export this year, contributing to regaining high position for Vietnamese rice. At present, prices of Vietnamese rice are equal to those of Thai rice, he added.

Last year, Viet Nam exported 3.25 million tonnes of rice.
