The private rice exporter in Vietnam express their dissatisfaction with VGA saying that instead of promoting their rice business the VGA is demoting their business.
The VGA is discouraging the rice exporter in the Vietnam . the VGA apply its rules and regulations to the rice exporter to export their rice to countries like Indonesia,Malaysia,Philippines as VGA has a Government to government contract with these countries. Due to these so called concentrated contracts their business is facing a lot of decline for they past few months.Also if they registered to export their rice to these three countries they were faced harassment.
The VGA and two state owned export enterprises struck deals of rice with Indonesia,Malaysia,Philippines at very low prices less than the prices currently at market.The rice exporters have to export the rice at this rate so they have to export the rice at these rates hence they have to suffer a lot of losses in their business.They are also facing discourags because of the prices of rice and paddy prices.
They are facing losses as they have to buy the rice at higher prices and export them at lower prices.
