Sao Khue Investment and Trade Promotion Organization recently signed an agreement with Rice International Conference and Exhibition (RICE) - Dubai 2011, to establish a center to market and distribute made-in-Vietnam products in Dubai.
The center will be supported by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, and 30 rice and aqua product companies. It will function as a market research and marketing center, and a base depot for Vietnamese products in the future.
The United Arab Emirates is the gateway to the Middle East and Northern African markets. This is the largest rice re-exporting market in the world with a trading value of more than US$2 billion per year, accounting for 93 percent of the total re-export of global rice.
