The bank is scrabbling to pay farmers for their pledged paddy and farmers are running out of patience protesting and trying to exercise their rights by writing letters of demand to government offices.The BAAC says it will try to use state enterprises’ funds to pay farmers. It was separately announced the BAAC conducted a successful debt auction, borrowing the 32.58 billion baht (about $991 million) at 3.14% interest, but the term of the debt was not reported.

The prime minister is facing opposition from farmers and other rural voters who are angry over delay in payments; the government was supposed to pay farmers by January 15 but is missing that deadline. The President of the Thai Rice Exporters Association said the government has to pay approximately 170 billion baht (around $5.2 billion) to the farmers.Critics say corruption is ripe in the scheme and has cost tax payers hundreds of billions of baht (tens of billions of dollars). Since Yingluck is the nominal head of the National Rice Committee, she is likely to face charges.The NACC may also investigate the role of the former Commerce Minister in the government-to- Daily Rice E-Newsletter by Rice Plus Magazine www.ricepluss.com News and R&D Section mujajhid.riceplus@gmail.com Cell # 92 321 369 2874

He was sacked by Yingluck in June 2013 for not being able to answer public concerns about the deals.Locals are skeptical about the likelihood of those responsible actually being held accountable. Thailand Exchange Plans Auction of Pledged Rice on January 22, Despite Political Rifts Jan 16, 2014 The Agricultural Futures Exchange of Thailand (AFET) is planning a new round of rice auctions from government stocks on January 22, 2014, despite ongoing political protests in Bangkok, according to the Thai News Bureau.The auctions were originally scheduled for January 15 but were postponed.The AFET said that the price offered by bidders from the last year's auction would be used as base for setting the default prices for the January 22 auction. It also said that the offer would comprise of 110,000 tons of white rice with 5% water content from silos in Saraburi, Lopburi and Phitsanulok , and 38,000 tons of second grade Jasmine fragrant rice from Ubon Ratchathani and Nakhon Ratchasima barns.The exchange expects the bidding to be more interesting as there are more varieties of rice in the coming auction as compared to the earlier auctions.

With De Girolamo facing charges, her and the EU rice industry’s efforts to restrict LDC duty-free rice imports to Europe may be delayed. Ente Nazionale Risi, Italy’s National Rice Agency, reports that rice imports from LDCs Cambodia and Myanmar increased from 31,750 tons in 2009-10 to 129,299 tons in 2012-13, including 123,182 tons of from Cambodia and 3,952 tons from Myanmar. Myanmar has only enjoyed LDC status since 2013 after resolving some EU issues with local labor practices.

  6. 6. Iraq Tenders to Buy 30,000 Tons of Rice Jan 16, 2014 Iraq has tendered to buy 30,000 tons of rice. Iraq is accepting bids for long-grain rice from the US, Uruguay, Argentina, and Brazil and bids for medium-grain rice from Spain, the U.S., and Australia.Offers must be submitted by February 2 and valid until February 6. Tags: Iraq rice tender Buyers Beware: Rice Companies Try to Trick Consumers with Low Quality Rice, Change Packing with Markers Jan 16, 2014 Taiwan’s Agriculture and Food Agency (AFA), an arm of the Council of Agriculture (COA) will inspect packaged rice in Taiwan every month from this year after finding mislabeled rice on store shelves.Inspections by the COA officials in the state brought to light that many rice bands are mislabeling low-cost rice as more expensive rice, deceiving the consumers.Instead of decreasing the prices of downgraded packages, companies are changing the names of the products on the labels, sometimes even with markers. While some have pushed for the revocation of companies’ licenses, the Food Administration Act governs only food labels and the quality of food products; it does not deal with pricing.However, some companies were fined for mislabeling and told to revise their labels within 24 days, and the COA has also asked consumers to boycott packages with unreasonable prices or doubtful labels. Trying to escape blame, the rice selling companies demanded that the government pay more attention to rice that is sold in bulk, saying most of those products are not well labeled and thus they claim they cannot identify the rice quality they are pricing and selling to consumers. The AFA said it will randomly inspect 80-90 packages on a monthly basis starting this year.

They will also educate the farmers regarding the US rice commodity market and the ways to benefit from it. While farmers will face the usual challenges this year such as potential hurricanes, droughts and excessively high temperatures, Steven Linscombe, the director of the University's Rice Research Station, says the delay of proposed U.S. Farm Bill is a major challenge to farmers as they decide what crops to plant.

The association is seeking to protect the rice producing land from negative effects of the Coal Seam Gas (CSG) activities in the area.The association has reacted to an application by a private gas company to explore the NSW region for CSG reserves. The rice growers association's executive director said they are not opposed to gas development in the area but are concerned that CSG activities would impact rice production in the region.Although the government has introduced Strategic Regional Land Use Policy (SRLUP) - a mechanism to protect strategic agricultural land through an independent scientific assessment prior the development application stage - the farmers are keen on getting CIS status for the rice sector. The government has recognized viticulture and the horse breeding and training industries in the area as CISs.CSG is a natural gas found in coal deposits and it can be used for cooking and heating as well as in industrial processes and electricity generation.The USDA estimates the milled rice production in Australia at 680,000 tons in the year 2013-14 around 19% lower compared to 840,000 tons in 2012-13 due to a 12% decline in rice acreage to 100,000 hectares from last year's 114,000 hectares. Australia will export 520,000 tons and import about 140,000 tons in 2013-14, according to USDA estimates.

Increases were reported for Mexico (1,900 tons), Canada (1,500 tons), Israel (700 tons), Hong Kong (700 tons), and Singapore (400 tons).

  11. 11. Yingluck to be probed, ex-ministers charged on rice scheme Published: 16 Jan 2014 at 18.48 The anti-graft agency will investigate caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's role in the rice pledging scheme after bringing formal charges of corruption against two of her cabinet ministers. About 50 farmers in Buri Ram rally at the provincial hall on Thursday to demand quick payment for their pledged rice. The National Anti-Corruption Commission has found the scheme plagued with corruption. (Photo by Surachai Piraksa).The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) will check to see if she was negligent in her duties as chair of the National Rice Policy Committee.Ms Yingluck failed or had no intention to stop the alleged corruption and she could face criminal charges, said NACC member and spokesman Visa Mahakhun, who chaired the inquiry panel into the issue. Former commerce minister Boonsong Teriyapirom and ex-deputy commerce minister Poom Sarapol were charged by the agency, together with 13 other persons including former director-general of the External Trade Department Manas Sroypol who was involved in negotiations to sell rice to two Chinese state enterprises on government-to-government contracts.The NACC has found no evidence that the two firms - Guangdong Stationery & Sporting Goods Import & Export Corp, and Hainan Grain & Oil Industrial Trading Co - had been authorised by the Chinese government to buy the rice under the government-to-government scheme. It also found no evidence that the rice had been exported to China. The NACC investigators excluded Ms Yingluck from its inquiry and concentrated on the persons directly involving in attempts to sell the rice under the scheme.Anti-graft investigators spent more than one year before reaching the conclusion by questioning more than 100 witnesses and reading more than 10,000 pages of evidence.Mr Vicha said Ms Yingluck will be called on to defend the case and added that the NACC will try to wrap up the probe on the caretaker prime minister as soon as possible.Mr Boonsong and Mr Poom and 13 other persons will be summoned to listen to the charges.Democrat Party spokesman Chavanond Intarakomalyasut urged stern action against those found guilty in the case as the scheme had severely damaged the country."We would like to see the NACC make the right decision and see politicians who want to promote themselves at the expense of the national image punished,'' he said.
