According to Vice Chairman of the Vietnam Food Association Do Ha Nam, this year, the ST25 rice developed by Labour Hero Ho Quang Cua and his team under the Ho Quang Tri enterprise in Soc Trang represented Vietnamese rice in the 2020 World's Best Rice Contest.

First prize in this year's competition went to Thailand, and third prize was Cambodia's.

Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, the 12th The Rice Trader World Rice Conference was held in virtual format and the results of the contest were announced online. In Vietnam, the online venue for the contest was at the Renaissance Riverside Hotel Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City.

After many years as the world's best rice, in 2019, at the World's Best Rice Contest in the Philippines, Vietnamese ST25 rice won 1st prize. This was the first time Vietnamese rice had been honoured as the best rice in the world.

Recently, following the aspirations of Ho Quang Cua and his team, the right to exploit ST25 is expected to be transferred to the State for the formation of a national rice brand and the transfer work is being taken on by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
