Papua province imports rice from Vietnam

Papua's provincial administration has imported rice from Vietnam to meet local demand. The imported rice was to add to the existing stock and to ensure that there would be no shortage of the stape in the province, an official of the provincial Logistics Depot, Eddy Busran, told Antara in Jayapura.

Last year, the two provinces in Indonesian New Guinea imported 21,500 tons of rice.
