However, Vietnam’s main export markets are Asia (accounting for 70%) and Africa (accounting for 14%). The rice exports of 2017 rice reached x,xxx thousand tons increased by 20.4%, the rice export turnover x,xxx thousand USD, up 21.2%. In 2017, China is the largest rice importer of Vietnam, accounting for 40% of Vietnam’s total export volume of x,xxx thousand tons, up 35.2% over the previous year.
