He advised the government to speed up clearance of existing rice stocks to foreign markets to circumvent price variations that may arise.

He also said that the country has set a target for rice exports in 2017 at 9.5 million tons, valued at US$4.3 billion.
Of these, approximately 4.6 million tons will be white rice, he added.
