NDO/VNA – Online customs declaration services will be made available for exports of additional 38,000 tonnes of rice at 0:00 am on April 26, according to the General Department of Vietnam Customs.

The volume is part of Vietnam’s 400,000-tonne-rice export quota for April.

Earlier this month, the government of Vietnam has limited the export rice volume to 800,000 tonnes for April and May as a measure to ensure sufficient domestic supplies amid high global demand caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This volume is reduced by 40% compared to that in April and May 2019. It is also 35.7% and 21.7% lower than the same period in 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Meanwhile, the national rice reserves will increase from 300,000 to 700,000 tonnes.
