Thailand to barter rice for Indonesian plane
BANGKOK, Dec 17 (TNA) - Indonesia has agreed to import 300,000 tonnes of Thai rice in exchange for Thailand's purchase of an aircraft from Jakarta, according to Agriculture and Cooperatives Minister Sudarat Keyuraphan.

The two countries' new barter trade agreement was concluded at a plenary meeting between Thai and Indonesian officials, chaired by Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono at the Government House here on Friday, she said.

The Indonesian president is leading a group of senior officials, including Minister/State Secretary Yusril Ihza Mahendra, Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Boediono and Foreign Minister Hassan Wirajuda, to pay a three-day official visit to Thailand, starting from December 15.

"This is the second barter trade agreement between the two neighbours over the past two years," she noted.

"Under the first deal, Jakarta also agreed to import Thai rice in exchange for Thailand's purchase of an Indonesian aircraft, worth Bt700 million, to be used in the Thai government's artificial rain operations. But Bangkok has yet purchased the airplane. So, this time Jakarta agreed to purchase the new lot of Thai rice in a hope that more than one aircraft will be shipped to Thailand," she said.

"The first Indonesian aircraft under the first deal will soon be shipped to Thailand," she added.

Other agreements were also reached during the plenary talks, including those on security, trade, investment, energy, fishery and tourism cooperation, according to Deputy Government Spokesman Chalermchai Mahakitsiri.

"The two governments have agreed to jointly countering transnational crime and develop alternative energy, as well as boost bilateral trade and investment. Jakarta has also agreed to extend its concession for Thai trawlers fishing in the Indonesian waters for another one year--until September 2006," the deputy government spokesman said.

The Indonesian president and his entourage, who also met Thai business persons, will end their visit to Bangkok on Saturday.
