The rice was shipped from the RoK to Vietnam via Cam Ranh port in Khanh Hoa province and Da Nang port in Da Nang City.

Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Hoang Van Thang said at the hand-over ceremony in the district of Dai Loc in Quang Nam province on March 21 that people in remote areas still face with numerous difficulties despite Government support to deal with storm consequences. He said the Ministry will direct localities to receive and allocate the rice to needy people.

Last year, central and Central Highlands provinces suffered great losses caused by storms and floods. Storm Damrey left 123 dead and missing, 342 others injured, destroyed crops and damaged thousands of houses.
