Thailand Aiming to Boost Rice Export To China
The Commerce Ministry is strongly determined to maintain Thailand's position as the world's top rice exporter with China becoming a key export destination.

Commerce Minister Krirkkrai Jirapaet, who led a team of 16 rice exporters to this China province to meet Chinese rice importers, said China is one of Thailand major rice export destinations.

Thailand's rice export to China totaled 600,000-700,000 tonnes each year, half of which is fragrant jasmine rice.

He said the government had a policy to keep Thailand's position as the world's top rice exporter.

Last year, the total rice exports rose to 7.5 million tonnes and are expected to surge to 8.5 million tonnes this year.

Mr. Krirkkrai said the visit to Guangzhou is considered success since 11 out of 16 exporters accompanying him managed to sign rice trade deals with Chinese importers under which 275,000 tonnes of rice are set to be exported to China.

Of this, 52,000 tonnes are fragrant jasmine rice.

It showed the rice had won Chinese people's recognition, he said
