Deputy minister Tran Quoc Khanh has been tasked to directly work with relevant organizations and individuals to make clear the news.

Formerly on the same day some online newspapers published a statement by director general of ADC Company Ngo Van Nam at a seminar on amending Decree 109/2010 on rice trading and export, saying each time businesses applied for rice export license, they must spend at least US$20,000.

The ministry will soon provide specific information about the case.
