The Department of Foreign Trade met twice with the rice miller federation and rice traders.

In the next meeting, relevant ministers of rice producer countries – Vietnam, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand — will be invited to meet to consider establishing a tangible cooperative mechanism in rice market operations.

Such cooperation will also pave the way for more cooperation in food security and energy among the ASEAN bloc and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) in the future.
