The facts:

  • In 2014 Thailand exported 10.8 million tonnes of rice, an increase of +63.6% from 2013
  • Global rice trade is expected to hit 41.9 mn tonnes this year (last year was 41.88 mn)
  • World’s rice consumption is 483 mn tonnes

Questions from this

  • Can you imagine how poorly the previous government managed the rice sales in 2013?
  • Even despite this increase in volume, Thailand’s exports only grew at low single digits, so the rest of the export market has been performing even more poorly.
