Higher Government Intervention Price Pushes Thailand’s Export Prices Up
Rice Databank, October, 2004
Export prices for most grades of Thailand’s milled white rice have increased $3-$7 per ton since late September in response to an announced higher intervention (government purchase) price for the 2004/05 rice crop. The intervention program for the current crop begins on November 1.
Besides the upcoming government purchases, there is nothing else pushing Thailand’s prices higher, with import demand lackluster. In fact, the recent price increase has reduced Thailand’s competitiveness compared with other Asian sources. Even with the recent increase, Thailand’s export prices remain below a month earlier, a result of weak global demand.
Prices for Thailand's 100 percent Grade B (FOB vessel, Bangkok) were quoted at $243 per ton for the week ending October 4, up $7 from a week earlier but still $11 below early September.

Prices for Thailand's 5 percent brokens were quoted at $238 per ton, up $6 from late September but $2 below a month earlier. Prices for Thailand's low-quality (100 percent brokens) A-1 Special were quoted at $202 per ton for the week ending October 4, up $4 from a week earlier but still $10 below early September.

Like regular milled rice, price quotes for parboiled rice have increased since late September but remain below a month earlier. For the week ending October 4, prices for Thailand's 5 percent parboiled were quoted at $248 per ton, up $4 from late September but down $11 from a month earlier. Many buyers of parboiled rice are shifting to India due to India’s lower prices.

Vietnam's prices have declined over the past month due to a lack of fresh demand and the upcoming harvest of its Tenth Month crop. In late September, the government removed its moratorium on new export sales. Price for Vietnam's 5 percent brokens (FOB vessel, Ho Chi Minh City) were quoted at $215 per ton for the week ending October 5, down $13 from a month earlier and the lowest since February. Vietnam’s rice is currently selling at a $20-$25 per ton discount to Thailand for similar grades of rice.
