  • Thailand Rice Mortgage Program Ends; Government Still Battling to Raise Funds to Pay Farmers Mar 03, 2014 Thailand's controversial rice pledging scheme ended on February 28, 201, and cannot be extended until at least a new government is formed in the country, according to the Caretaker Commerce Minister.According to unofficial reports from the Internal Trade Department, more than 11 million tons of paddy rice was pledged under government's pledging program during October 1, 2013 to February 26, 2014. However, farmers are still waiting for payments. The Election Commission (EC) has approved the government to use 712 million baht (around $21.8 million) from the Central Budget to pay farmers. Around 3,900 farmers in five provinces are to be paid in full over the next week, according to the local sources. However, the EC has still not approved another 20 billion baht (around $613 million) from the Central Budget, which is required to clear all payments.Thailand farmers now have to sell their paddy at market prices. According to the Thai Rice Mills Association, the 100% white rice (with 15% humidity) is quoted at around 7,200-8,500 baht (around $221 - $260) per ton, almost half of the pledging price of 15,000 baht (around $460) per ton.Meanwhile, the Bank of Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives (BAAC) President clarified that forming a Rice Farmers' Fund is legal and does not violate the BAAC royal decree. However, the fund represents only 20% of 20 billion baht (around $613 million) that has to be paid by the government to the farmers.Separately, the Director General of the Department of Internal Trade is considering sale of 110,000 tons of rice worth 1.3 to 1.4 billion baht (around $39.8 - 42.8 million) through the Agricultural Futures Exchange of Thailand (AFET). The Department is also considering direct sale of 200,000 tons of government stock on March 12, 2014.

The new Supplies Minister says that there are demands for resumption of exports to help Egyptian rice get access to new markets and to boost the country’s economy.The Egyptian government suspended rice exports in November 2013 despite having an exportable rice surplus of 800,000 tons a year to ensure supplies for its food subsidy program. According to the USDA, Egypt’s rice production in MY 2013-14 is estimated at around 4.85 million tons, against a consumption of around 4 million tons.

The agreement was extended another 10 years in 2004 allowing the country to import 7.96% of annual rice consumption. However, the Agriculture Minister says that the WTO is unlikely to allow further delay in opening its rice market. oreover, delay in opening the rice market will not benefit South Korea. He says, "If we had switched to opening the rice market with import tariffs 10 years ago, we would not have had to take on an additional 200,000 tons in import quota. ”However, the Agriculture Minister says that if government decides to open the rice market, it would set the import duties between 300% - 500% of import prices. He says that the government prefers higher tariffs, but the decision over tariffs has to be ratified by the WTO. The Agriculture Minister says the final decision of the government on the rice import policy will be announced by June 2014.Rice consumption is declining in South Korea due to changing lifestyles, and the government is trying to reduce rice area to help maintain profits for rice farmers.
