Thai fragrant rice prices increased
Export prices for most grades of white rice remained unchanged, except prices for fragrant rice which continued to increase. Trade sources reported that domestic prices of white rice fell some because local rice traders and millers released stocks. However, the strengthening Thai Baht (to around 40.7 Baht/US$, as compared to the previous week’s average of 41.2 Baht/US$) totally offset a drop in domestic prices. Some foreign buyers reportedly resumed their trading activities. Export prices are expected to increase further in the next couple of weeks, following anticipated demand for white rice shipment for Iraq’s latest deal.

The surge in fragrant rice prices mainly reflected the government intervention program, where the intervention prices are set at 9,000 Baht/ton (roughtly US$ 220/MT), up from 7,000 Baht/ton (roughly US$ 167/MT) in the previous year. However, further increases in export prices will likely be limited, as major buyers, such as China, reportedly shifted to relatively cheaper Pahtumthani fragrant rice.
