Thailand Cabinet approves rice hub project in Nakhon Sawan
The Cabinet Tuesday gave a green light to a project to promote Nakhon Sawan as Thailand's rice hub -- to support the plan to promote the lower northern region as a center to produce, transport, sell and export of rice.

Government spokesman Dr. Surapong Suebwonglee said that the cabinet has approved the project to develop Nakhon Sawan to become the nation's 'rice hub.'

The agencies concerned include the State Railway of Thailand (SRT), which was assigned to jointly develop the logistics to support the latest contemporary transportation, he said, adding that the Ministry of Transport was ask to provide a plan to promote transport on the Chao Phraya River.

The spokesman said areas to build a trucking terminal would be determined while the SRT would explore ways to undertake a joint venture with private transport companies on water and land in order to link to transshipment networks in the area.

The cabinet also approved establishment of the Rice Department to be situated in Nakhon Sawan province, he said.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives would be responsible to find the location for the department and support the agency's activities--from a center to produce seed, to a research center on product processing.

The Ministry would join with the Ministry of Industry to research and develop products from rice, he added.
