            Thailand targets Vietnam in ASEAN rice firm bid

            Thailand has unveiled a plan to hold talks with Vietnam on establishing an ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) rice trading firm.

            She added that her counterparts from Laos and Cambodia have asked Thailand and Vietnam, the world?s two biggest rice exporters, to play a key role in the scheme.

            The initiative was raised by Thailand at an AEM meeting held in Bangkok in 2009, calling on major rice exporters in the 10-member group to join in to boost trade and stabilise prices of the regional staple.

            Porntiva said the plan has been delayed due to a shortage of rice reserves and rice mills in some countries.

              Philippines calls halt to rice purchases through end-2010
              16:22, Friday, 06/08/2010 (GMT+7)

              Since 1995, the Philippines has been Vietnam?s top rice customer. Until 2005, the rice export contracts were government-to-government deals. From 2005 on, though export contracts were ostensibly privatized, it has always been the state-owned Southern Food Corporation (Vinafood 2) that wins the bid and allocates ?quotas? to subsidiaries. Vinafood 2 annually has exported nearly two million tons rice to the Philippines, meeting 2/3 of that country?s import requirement.

              The new Benigno Aquino administration in Manila says it will encourage increased local food production and change rice import policies, aiming for self-sufficiency in rice by 2013.

              Tran Duc Tung, formerly an expert at the Ministry of Agriculture?s Planning Department, comments that the sale of rice in big quantities and at high prices to the Philippines has brought big benefits to Vietnam over the last many years. However, Tung says, there has been a downside. Because enterprises have relied on one big market, they have become complacent. They have lost dynamism, the most important thing in doing business.

                Last update 15:21, Monday, 09/08/2010 (GMT+7)
                VietNamNet Bridge ? The Vietnam Food Association (VFA) late last week released important information: China has purchased up to 600,000 tons of summer-autumn crop rice from Vietnam, which may threaten national food security.

                Nguyen Dinh Bich, a rice expert, explained that it?s nothing new when China purchases rice from Vietnam. Some Chinese provinces near Vietnam regularly lack rice because of bad weather. Instead of carrying rice from other areas of China, which costs time and money, they would rather buy from Vietnam.

                According to VFA, an estimated 600,000 tons of rice have been exported to China, but there are no exact figures and official surveys warn about the impact on national food security.
