The five-year Thai Rice Strategy for the period 2020-24 is ready, Jurin Laksanawisit, deputy prime minister and the minister of commerce, said.


The strategy prepared by a subcommittee will be proposed to a meeting of the National Rice Policy and Management Committee (NRPMC) before seeking approval from the Cabinet.


The goal is to make Thailand a world leader in the production and marketing of quality rice and rice products, in four areas: foreign marketing; domestic marketing; production and processed products; and innovations from rice, Jurin said.


The rice is divided into seven types according to the needs of the three markets: premium market (jasmine and Thai fragrant rice); general market (soft white rice, hard white rice and parboiled rice); and specific markets (sticky rice, coloured rice or special feature rice).

I am really afraid Thailand missed the boat in the rice and tourist business.

Sincerely hope I am wrong, the poor have been hit too much already.
