Thailand Rice Update
Export prices for most grades of rice continued to increase in response to the strong domestic prices and exchange rate. Trade sources reported that the current government intervention program put upward pressure on domestic prices, in particular white rice paddy in the North of Thailand. Also, exporters adjusted the prices up to cover the appreciation of the Thai Baht, which was at around 39.5 Baht/US$, as compared to around 40.0 Baht/US$ for months. As for the recent government stock release, trade sources reported that the final amount released would depend on bidding prices, as the government expected higher prices from exporters, despite the low quality of rice in the stock.

Unofficial exports for Dec. 8-14, 2003 totaled 117,731 tons, up 31,444 tons from the previous week’s total and down 5,610 tons from the four-week moving average of 123,341 tons. Exports during Jan. 1- Dec. 14, 2003, totaled 4,951,879 tons, compared with 5,607,282 tons (including fragrant rice) during the same period in 2002.

According to the Department of Internal Trade, Ministry of Commerce, total rice exports (including fragrant rice) during Jan. 1 – Nov. 30, 2003 amounted to 6,740,714 tons, up slightly from 6,678,416 tons in 2002.
