Vietnam Plans to Export Record 3 Million Tons of Rice in First Half
Vietnam, the world's second-largest rice exporter, plans to ship a record 3 million tons of rice in the first half of this year, up 5.5 percent from the same period last year, state-controlled media reported Wednesday.

The country expects to export up to 5 million tons of rice this year, the Vietnam Economic Times newspaper cited Chairman Truong Thanh Phong of the Vietnam Food Association as saying. Vietnam's winter-spring crop produces most of its rice exports.

Vietnam, the second-biggest rice exporter after Thailand, exported 4.75 metric tons of rice last year.

So far this year, Vietnamese companies have signed contracts to export 3.5 million tons of rice, Phong said.

Earlier this year, the Ministry of Trade said the country could only export up to 4.5 million tons of rice in 2007 because of pest infestations in paddy rice in the southern Mekong Delta, Vietnam's main rice-growing region, but the problem was not as bad as initially thought.
