    The National Food Authority (NFA) of the Philippines last week announced a decision to call for bids for supply of 250,000 tons of 25% broken rice. The deadline for submission of bids is 10 a.m. on July 25. Winning bidders will have to deliver rice to the Philippines in August and September, which coincides with the lean season. The Philippines is expected to spend 5.6 billion pesos to buy this volume of rice under a government-to-private (G2P) contract to guarantee competition and prevent corruption, instead of government-to-government as previously. At a recent conference on rice trade in Can Tho City, VFA chairman Nang said Vietnam might be selected to provide rice for the Philippines as the current rice stocks of Thailand, the major rival of Vietnam, total only 160,000 tons. In addition, Thai rice prices are higher than Vietnam’s, so chances are Vietnam can win the tender. Rice stocks in the Philippines, one of the world’s largest rice importers, have dipped to the lowest level in three years, and are enough to meet the demand in just six days. This will be the first Philippine rice tender this year.
  • Bangladesh issues tender to import 50,000 tonnes of rice

  • DHAKA, June 21 (Reuters) - Bangladesh's state grains buyer on Wednesday issued its fourth international tender since May, looking to import 50,000 tonnes of parboiled rice as it grapples with depleted stocks and record local prices. The deadline for offers is July 9, with the rice to be shipped within 40 days of signing any deal, a senior official at the country's state grains buyer said, declining to be identified. The step comes as the government is set to slash tax on rice imports after flash floods hit local output, plunging state reserves to 10-year lows. Growing demand from Bangladesh will help stoke Asian prices that have already hit multi-year highs in recent months. Separately, Ataur Rahman, additional secretary at the food ministry, told Reuters last week, that the country would import 200,000 tonnes of white rice at $430 a tonne and 50,000 tonnes of parboiled rice at $470 a tonne from Vietnam in a government-to-government deal. Those rates are sharply higher than what it has been paying through previous tenders. Bangladesh is buying 50,000 tonnes of white rice at $406.48 a tonne and 100,000 tonnes of parboiled rice at $427.85 and $445.11 a tonne through tenders. The government is also in talks with Thailand and India to import rice to replenish reserves. Meanwhile, Bangladesh's central bank has ordered banks to allow traders to import rice without any deposit against letters of credit. (Reporting by Ruma Paul)

  • Govt to import 50,000 tonnes of white rice

  • Bangladesh's state grains buyer issued an international tender on Monday to import 50,000 tonnes of white rice, officials said, its second tender in a week to build reserves and control prices of the staple.  The state agency, Directorate General of Food, came up with its first tender for rice since 2011 as local rice prices hit a record high and state reserves are at a six-year low. It plans to import 600,000 tonnes of rice after flash floods hit fields about to be harvested, potentially wiping out 700,000 tonnes of crops. Authorities are considering waiving the tax on rice imports, Badrul Hasan, the head of the Directorate General of Food, told Reuters last week. He said the state agency also planned to import rice through government-to-government deals with producers such as Thailand, Vietnam and India because importing via tenders is a lengthy process. In the latest tender, the deadline for offers is May 28 and the rice is to be shipped in 40 days after the deal is signed, a senior official at the state grains buyer said. The world's fourth-biggest rice producer with more than 30 million tonnes per year, Bangladesh consumes almost all its production to feed its population of 160 million. It often requires imports, however, to cope with shortages caused by natural disasters like floods and droughts. (Reporting by Ruma Paul, editing by Ed Osmond)
