Aug. 10 – Following its WTO commitments, the Vietnamese government will now allow foreign-invested businesses to distribute and export rice this year, says Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Nguyen Thanh Bien.

Last week, Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai approved the measure. Mr. Hai also added that the trade ministry should also ask the government to adjust legal frameworks and regulations to ensure long-term transparency in state management of rice trading, reports Thanh Nien News.
