Construction of a VND77 billion rice processing complex has started in Thoai Son district of the Mekong delta province of An Giang, aiming to reduce post harvest losses for farmers and increasing the quality of processed rice for exports.

The 2.6ha complex, built by the An Giang Import Export Company, comprises a warehouse system which can accommodates 28,000-30,000 tonnes of paddy rice and a drying system which can process 600 tonnes of paddy rice per day.

According to the Vietnam Food Association (VFA), so far this month, Vietnam has exported almost 400,000 tonnes of rice for more than US$185 million, bringing the country’s total rice exports in more than six months to 4.3 million tonnes worth US$2 billion.

Asia remains a major importer, making up 54 percent of Vietnam’s total rice exports, followed by Africa with 31 percent and America, 12.2 percent, said the VFA.
