Viet Nam suspends rice exports
Vietnam, the world`s second-largest rice exporter, has halted overseas shipments to secure supplies of the staple grain after floods and insect plagues reduced output, an official said Monday.

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung had announced only export contracts already signed with Indonesia and Cuba -- whose ships were now docked in Vietnam -- would go ahead, an official at the government`s office said.

"The prime minister made the decision to ensure food security for the nation," the spokesman added.

Dung had also decided Sunday that approval for any other deliveries required his approval after rice crops in southern Vietnam were hit in recent months by summer floods and insect and crop diseases, the spokesman said.

The state-run Vietnam News Agency (VNA) reported Dung had ordered serious punishment for those engaged in rice speculation in the country of 84 million people.

Vietnam`s rice exports are second only to Thailand.

However, from January to October this year, the country`s rice exports were down 7.8 percent year on year, earning the country 1.18 billion dollars.

Last year, its rice exports reached a record of 5.2 million tons, earning Vietnam 1.39 billion dollars in revenues, AFP reported.
