Iraq tenders for more rice
Iraq has tendered to buy further large amounts of Thai and Vietnamese rice, an official with the Iraqi Grain Board said Thursday.

"I can't say at this time how much rice we are going to buy," the grain board official said, adding it depends on prices companies submit.

However Iraq's Trade Minister Abdul Basset Mawlood was quoted by local press as saying that Baghdad was seeking 300,000 tons of rice.

He also said that Baghdad has invited U.S., Thai and Vietnamese companies to bid for a tender to supply thousands of tons of rice.

The closing date for both tenders is Sept. 25, with delivery slated for late 2005 or early 2006.

The official could not confirm any further purchasing plans beyond the current tender.

Earlier this month, Iraq bought 350,000 metric tons of U.S. rice for delivery by the end of 2005.

Iraq needs to buy 1 million tons of rice every year, according to Iraqi Trade Ministry statistics.
