Thailand to reclaim world's leading rice exporter role next year

Recommended Posts

In the BKK post today was an advert from a International charity NGO asking for sealed bids to buy 2.56 million tons of rice for the refugee camps along the border.

I wonder if someone from the Commerce ministry saw it. If not maybe one of the likely suspects (fab4 etc) could get on the phone to Thaksin/Amsterdam and let them know.

It would hopefully minimise shipping-costs, to source this rice from Thai warehouses, wouldn't it ?

But how to persuade them to pay a premium to normal world-market prices ?

So sell it to the supposed Third or fourth world countries, in Thai-Chinese terms, sell it to the foruth world scum, let the poor people there eat the rotten expired rice until they die from diarrhea, just in order to appeal so International, but screw the Western countries, who are too smart and cause the Pheu Thai to lose face...

Back to school Maxy baby. In your zeal to denigrate the rice pledging scheme ( remember the Democrat's rice guarantee policy?) you should maybe calm down and at least make your rant legible.

1) The good minister is full of crap.

2) Thailand should never have lost its status as leading rice exporter in the first place. But hey, thanks to Thaksin, the idiot PTP and their rice corruption schemes.

At least their cronies got rich(er).

You obviously don't recall the Dim Democrat's attempt at forming a rice price guarantee scheme.

None of the Democrats ever had to feebly proclaim:

Thailand to reclaim world's leading rice exporter role next year

The loss of the title, World's Leading Rice Exporter, occurred under the Yingluck/Thaksin administration.

And now, yet another title loss for Thailand under the Yingluck/Thaksin administration

Neither do you it would seem?

It was about a minumum price guarantee. The difference being paid DIRECTLY to farmers. Lots of farmers complaining the guarantee level was too low.

I never yet met a farmer, who didn't think he should get paid more, for his crop. rolleyes.gif

But the objective was to put a floor-price under the market-price for rice, and to get the money direct to the farmer, reducing the opportunities for corruption along-the-way, and at a price more-easily-affordable by the government & taxpayer.

The Democrat system worked, there was less corruption (I'd never claim none ... people usually find ways to get their hands on government-money !) , and Thailand remained the world's leading-exporter of rice.

Pity that Thaksin didn't just run with the same scheme, and a higher-price, but that wouldn't have satisfied the millers & other feudal-elite who deliver the vote. wink.png
