Vietnam exported 96,665 tonnes of rice to Senegal in 2019, up 13 times year on year. - VN

HANOI (Vietnam News/ANN): Vietnam this year would have opportunities to continue increasing rice exports to Senegal, as well as Africa as a whole, due to high demand from those markets, the Vietnam Nam Trade Office in Algeria said.

This year, Senegal's demand for imported rice is forecasted to be high because people are storing more food, including rice, during the serious outbreak of locusts in East Africa – which has destroyed crops – and the Covid-19 epidemic, it said.
