HA NOI – Poor households in the central provinces of Quang Binh and Quang Tri will receive free rice from the national reserve during the period between crops, the Government has announced.

The two provincial people's committees have been asked to distribute the rice. If the quantities earmarked prove insufficient, the people's committees will have to make a request to the Prime Minister for more.
