Viet Nam Milling Assessment

For decades Viet Nam struggled to feed itself but is now the second-largest exporter of rice after Thailand. In 2007, Viet Nam sold 4.5 million tons to foreign buyers, but the government's decision to reduce rice exports by 22% caused countries, such as the Philippines, to urgently secure supplies.
Viet Nam may has a rice surplus, but inflation, an unusually long winter, pests and diminishing land for rice cultivation, as well as increasingly frequent and damaging typhoons, are raising concerns within the government. Improvements in production such as new rice varieties, better fertilizers, new farm machinery and a reduction of post-harvest losses have resulted in increased production

 Natural Disasters and Adverse Weather

Viet Nam is located in an area where there are frequent typhoons, and sometimes drought, either of which can result in severe crop damage. Fortunately, those areas which suffer most from typhoons are of minor importance in terms of rice production (i.e. the central region, and part of the northern plain). Some areas in the northern plain also suffer from fog, but the damage from this is negligible if properly managed.
