Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam will restructure its export rice products towards increasing the proportion of high-quality, high-value, organic, highly-nutritious rice and products made from rice.

The direction is highlighted in a draft on the strategy for developing Vietnam’s rice export market in the period 2016-2020 with a vision to 2030, which has been released by the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

According to the draft, from 2016, the export rice production will focus on long-grain white rice and high-quality rice with 5 to 10 percent of broken grains and reduce rice with more than 15 percent of broken grains.

By 2020, the low-quality white rice export proportion in the total volume of export rice will be reduced to 15 percent.-VNA
