Indonesia needs to import 1 million tons of rice from Vietnam

Indonesian Ambassador to Vietnam Mr Mayerfas said at the press meeting to introduce Indonesia-Vietnam Trade Fair & Business Forum on December 4 in Ha Noi that Indonesia needs to import a million tons of rice from Vietnam.

The Indonesia-Vietnam Trade Fair & Business Forum will take place from December 10 to 12.

Currently, Indonesia is the leading rice consuming country all over the world. Although the country has produced rice, the country has still imported rice from the neighboring countries; and Vietnam becomes the leading rice exporter to Indonesia.

Indonesia needs not only one million tons of rice but also coffee from Vietnam. The country’s import turnover from Vietnam reached US$ 40- 50 million in 2015, and it is expected to increase more and more in 2016.

This large scale fair will be a good chance to link up cooperation between enterprises and mark the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Indonesia (1955- 2015).

As plan, around 100 Indonesian enterprises will showcase their best products in the fields of auto parts and accessories, health devices, food and beverage at the event.

Around 300 firms will join the Indonesia- Vietnam business forum.
