The event will be jointly held by the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) and The Rice Trade Magazine. It will be joined by the Viet Nam Food Association, and a number of rice companies and international experts. 

With the participation of foreign rice importers, distributors and merchants from major markets such as China, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, the Republic of Korea, Japan, Africa, Europe and Mexico, the conference presents an opportunity for Viet Nam to promote its rice industry and exports and showcase the achievements in improving the quality and added values of Vietnamese rice products.

It aims to promote the country’s rice production industry and also helps to raise the image of Vietnamese rice as the country focuses on building an international brand and improving the quality of rice while implementing a rice export market development strategy and a new legal framework for rice export activities, according to the MOIT.

The conference is expected to see the attendance of 500-600 invited guests from key rice exporting and importing countries, large rice trading companies and rice experts.

In the first eight months of 2018, Viet Nam exported 4.4 million tons of rice worth US$2.2 billion, up 6.8% in volume and 22.1% in value compared with the same period of last year.
