Rice Aid 400,000 MT to the DPRK:
Rice Aid 400,000 MT to the DPRK: As the Republic of Korea Government (ROKG) stated publicly in early May, it intends to provide 400,000 MT of food grains to the DPRK in the form of a concessional loan. Their commitment will be met with 100,000 MT of domestic rice and 300,000 MT of foreign rice due to limited stocks of domestic rice. The ROKG has a 13 week surface delivery plan for July 21-October 22, 2004, during which 2,000 MT per day, four days per week (Tues.-Fri.), will cross the inter-Korean border by truck. This is the first time since 1995 that the DPRK has opened the land border to receive South Korean rice aid. In 1995, the ROKG donated 150,000 MT of domestic ric e to the DPRK.

South Korea is expected to purchase the 300,000 MT of foreign rice and have product delivered directly to discharge ports in North Korea. Based on previous experience, the Agricultural Fishery Marketing Corporation (AFMC), as the ROKG state trading company, on behalf of the South Korean Ministry of Unification (MU) is expected to hold an international open tender for the 300,000 MT of foreign rice at an as yet undisclosed date.
