Gov’t Increases Food Reserve

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has approved a plan to increase the amount budgeted to purchase food for storage this year by VND260 billion (about US$16.25 million) in a move to ensure food reserve.

The PM also allowed the Finance Ministry to adjust the budget for purchasing materials and rescue equipment. Income from last year’s sale of merchandises of national reserve will also be used to purchase food from farmers for this year’s national storage.
