Thai Market Update
Market Tone

Export prices continued to increase due mainly to the Thai baht strengthening to 32 baht/$, as compared to 32.3 in the previous week. Domestic prices were less variable this week. Also, exporters expect the Government to release intervention stocks for domestic and export markets. The Government is closely monitoring unusual speculative demand in the rice market and studying the cost and benefit of implementing measures on rice, including rice stock inspection and minimum export prices if domestic prices exceed the benchmark of 1,400 baht/bag (100 kg.) However, exporters do not expect the Government to implement measures, based on concerns over domestic shortage because a good second-crop harvest is expected to begin soon. Some exporters are offering quotes for low-grade white rice based on anticipated supplies of broken rice from the second-crop harvest. Export prices will likely remain high as many exporters must meet pending obligation once domestic supplies increase. Foreign demand for Thai white rice remains strong due to concerns over the cold-spell and possible rice crop damage in Vietnam. Parboiled rice prices increased significantly as exporters are aggressively filling pending shipments. Neworder demand remains strong as the Indian Government still bans non-basmati rice exports
