Thailand's rice export likely to reach 8.5 million tonnes
Vietnam Agency, March 25, 2004
Thailand's rice export is likely to reach 8.5 million tonnes this year thanks to the increasing demands from Iran, Iraq and African countries, according to Thai Trade Minister Watana Muangsook.

The country's rice export reached a record 7.6 million tonnes in volume and 1.84 billion USD in value last year, including 284,520 tonnes, 490,180 tonnes and 2.62 million tonnes shipped to Iraq, Iran, and Africa, respectively.

Experts forecast that China could buy a larger volume of Thai rice this year as its food stockpile has plunged.

Watana added that prices of Thai rice have increased due to the increasing demands on the world market and the government's halt on selling about 2 million tonnes of rice stockpiled by local exporters.

The Thai Government plan to buy 2.5 million tonnes of rice from farmers in the coming crops.
