Vietnamese Ambassador to Japan Vu Hong Nam appreciated the two sides’ efforts to bring the grain to such a high-standard market as Japan.
Vietnam is one of the world’s leading rice exporters, and the country’s grain has been available in more than 100 markets throughout the world. But it is the first time the ST25 rice has been shipped to Japan.
The diplomat expressed his hope that more varieties of Vietnamese rice will be able to approach this choosy market.
He revealed that to bring ST25 to Japan, Vietnam must meet over 600 technical standards.
