Vietnamese rice makes name in world market

In 2018, Vietnam’s total rice exports reached 6.15 million tonnes, with export turnover of 3.15 billion USD. The industry saw a 5.7% increase in volume and 19.6% increase in value compared to 2017.



Loc Troi 28 is a short term rice variety and the final product between the hybrid of Loc Troi 1 and Basmati rice variety of India. High-yielding, fragrant and nutritious compared to other varieties, Loc Troi 28 was well received at an international rice convention held in China.

Vietnamese rice producers now focus on production value, not just increasing volume. Furthermore, Vietnam has become a member of the global sustainable rice production programme, and for the first time in years, Vietnam rice price is higher than Thailand’s.

In recent years, Vietnam’s rice industry has paid more attention to promotional activities. The launch of Vietnam’s national rice logo has reiterated the efforts to bring more rice to the world market.

However, in the context of global warming and unpredictable weather patterns, as well as limitation in value chains and farmers’ struggle to make a living from growing rice, there is much needed to be done.

The global market is changing at a rapid pace and it requires Vietnam’s rice industry to heighten the production volume, improve the quality and deliver more diverse rice products.

Vietnam seeks foreign capital for renewable energy projects

By the end of 2018, the total capacity of renewable power projects had accounted for 2.1 percent of total electricity output in Vietnam.

However, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Cao Quoc Hung affirmed that developing renewable energy to ease the reliance on traditional power generation methods is one of Vietnam’s priority tasks.

Under the national strategy on renewable energy development for 2015-2030, Vietnam’s electricity output from renewable sources would increase from 58 billion kwh in 2015 to 101 billion kwh in 2020, 186 billion kwh in 2030 and 452 billion kwh by 2050, or 42 percent of total electricity output.

To reach that goal, the government has offered a series of preferences to investors, includng credit access, tax and land rent remissions, and the application of the Feed-in-Tariff electricity pricing mechanism for solar, wind, biomass power.

By the end of 2018, more than 10,000 MW of solar power had been registered by investors, while PPAs (power purchase agreemen…
