Vietnam 2019 Rice Exports Up 4.2% Year-On-Year: Customs

Rice exports from Vietnam, the world's third-largest shipper of the grain, rose 4.2% in 2019 from a year earlier to 6.4 million tonnes, customs data showed on Monday.

However, revenue from rice exports last year dropped 8.3% to $2.8 billion (€2.52 billion), the customs department said in a statement.

West Africa, the Philippines and Malaysia were among the largest buyers by volume of Vietnamese rice, it added.

In December, Vietnam's exports increased 36.7% from the previous month to around 500,000 tonnes, worth $228 million (€205.04 million).

The government's General Statistics Office late last month forecast 2019 rice exports at 6.259 million tonnes, and December exports at 390,000 tonnes.
