Long An proposes the Prime Minister to re-export sticky rice

Chairman of Long An Provincial People's Committee- Tran Van Can has just sent a petition to the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Industry and Trade for the mechanism of re-exporting sticky rice (HS 1006.30) without quantity limit.

In Long An province, sticky rice accounts for about 30-32 percent of the province's rice area

According to Official Letter No. 2237/BCT-XNK of March 28, 2020, the Ministry of Industry and Trade proposed the Prime Minister to re-export rice, of which 400,000 tons of rice will be exported in April 2020. However, the Ministry has not proposed the Prime Minister to export sticky rice with a special mechanism and unlimited quantity.

At the meeting chaired by Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade on rice export on March 26, Long An province and many other provinces and cities have also proposed to export sticky rice because it is grown a lot, especially Long An and An Giang provinces, while domestic demand is low.

The sticky rice inventory of the enterprises is nearly 56,000 tons

In Long An province, sticky rice accounts for about 30-32 percent of the province's rice area. Typically, the Winter-Spring crop 2019-2020, sticky rice area is about 65,000 hectares. Because the food needs of Vietnamese are mainly rice, they rarely eat sticky rice. Meanwhile, the contracts that have not yet delivered from now until the end of 2020 of Long An enterprise are about 204,570 tons of rice, of which, the Chinese market is 44,303 tons, mainly sticky rice. The sticky rice inventory of the enterprises is nearly 56,000 tons.

Therefore, Long An Provincial People's Committee proposed to the Prime Minister to re-export sticky rice with unlimited quantity (HS 1006.30) in order to solve the inventory at enterprises. As a result, the enterprises continue to buy sticky rice from farmers at a better price, ensuring production maintenance and economic growth.

Currently, Long An has 24 enterprises involved in rice export. Up to April 6, the total export volume of warehouses in the area in the first 6 months has been 314,070 tons, the unsold volume has been 26,204 tons, accounting for 8.34 percent (exceeding 5 percent of the Decree's provisions 107/2018/ND-CP). In addition, the actual inventory of traders in the area is 352,322 tons./.
