Vietnam's rice export between January and October rose 8.5 percent from a year ago to an estimated 6.38 million tons, the government said on Tuesday.

Rice export revenue in the first 10 months jumped 17.3 percent from the same period of 2010 to an estimated $3.22 billion, the government's General Statistics Office said in its monthly report.

Last Thursday, Vietnam trimmed its rice export forecast for this year to more than 7 million tons from an initial projection of up to 7.5 million tons, but said floods did not affect production.
