VGP - Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has approved the resumption of rice export provided that food security must be guaranteed amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, drought and saltwater intrusion.

The Government chief tasked the Ministry of Industry and Trade to coordinate with the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Agricultural and Rural Development and relevant agencies to carry out this plan and ensure that the export will not affect the national food security.

Rice shortages must not happen in any circumstances, especially in the context of climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic, PM Phuc demanded.

He tasked the Ministry of Industry and Trade to work with the relevant ministries to report on the rice export in April and propose the export plan for May to him before April 25./.
