An exporter from New Delhi stated, "They're simply waiting for pricing to correct before making new purchases." Four industry executives told Reuters previously this week that when customs officials revised the calculating technique for the 20% export obligations, resulting in an additional duty, Indian traders had entered into few additional agreements for parboiled rice exports. The 5% broken rice type was available in Vietnam for $590–$595 per metric ton, up from $585 a week earlier.

According to a trader located in Ho Chi Minh City, "prices rose higher after Indonesia earlier this week invited bidders for the supplies of 300,000 additional tons." The price per ton of Thailand's 5% broken rice was quoted at $598 on Thursday, a decrease from $615 the previous week.
