Takes about 40 minutes to read

CBI agreed to assess the European export market potential of Vietnamese floating rice, as part of a collaborative effort to promote this rice species in An Giang Province in the Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam. CBI’s partners include the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, GIZ and the Vietnamese local government (An Giang Province People’s Committee and The Tri Ton District People’s Committee). Floating rice is a traditional variety which is well adapted to changing water levels and thus seems fit for a programme of climate adaptation, while it also may have economic benefits for farmers.
