Grains Council Prepares Vietnam For U.S. Corn Imports
USAgNet - 10/15/2021

The U.S. Grain Council has had a presence in Vietnam since 1994, and since diplomatic relations were restored in 1995, Vietnam has become the U.S.’s seventh-largest agricultural trading partner.

The country has imported more than 1 million metric tons of distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) in each of the last three years.

In addition, Vietnam imported more than 12.5 million MT or 492,100,000 bushels of corn last year, yet just a fraction of this demand originates from the United States.

Traditional supply chains that favor South American origin and natural constraints to storing higher-moisture U.S. corn in the tropics often result in South America being more competitive.

“Vietnam shows an honest commitment to bilateral trade with the United States," said Caleb Wurth, USGC’s assistant director in Southeast Asia.

"Even though it is typically difficult for U.S. corn to compete into Southeast Asia, when it does, we stand ready to provide technical services to ensure our customers can maximize their experience.”

The Southeast Asia office refers to this technical servicing as “Tech Talks,” and it comes in the form of in-house, one-on-one trainings, where companies can express specific restraints and USGC can give tailored advice.
