In order to reduce the backlog of rice, a few days ago the Thai government decided from July onwards for 3 consecutive months, sales of 4,000,000 stock -500 ten thousand tons of rice this year, total sales of 850 million tons. This also means that the next period of time has been superior retail price of Thai rice will likely become close to the people, and may affect the domestic high-end price of rice.
