VN, Thailand in Phillipines rice deal

Thailand and Viet Nam have won deals to supply a total of 250,000 tonnes of rice to the Philippines after the two countries reduced their selling prices to suit Manila’s budget.

The tender has been a part of the state’s plans to import up to one million tonnes of rice to fulfill the country’s food demand for next year at low prices.

Officials at the Philippines’ National Food Authority (NFA) said Viet Nam will supply 150,000 tonnes of 25 per cent broken rice at US$424.85 per tonne, while Thailand will supply the remaining 100,000 tonnes at the same price. The price includes freight, insurance and other costs.

The NFA initially rejected higher bids from both countries, asking them to submit revised offers in line with its reference price of $425 per tonne.

Rice production in the Philippines has been affected by the severe weather, with an average of 20 typhoons passing through the country each year, which is why the country has had to import rice to meet the food demands of its 100 million people.

NFA spokesman Angel Imperial affirmed that Philippines needed a large amount of imported rice for its stocks and to prepare for any emergency situation.

Imperial said the agency’s buffer stock as of August 24 was good for only 21 days of domestic demand, below the minimum 30 days required during the lean harvest season from July to September.

Imports last year reached some 1.8 million tonnes, lower than the record volume of 2.45 million tonnes in 2010.

Despite the tender by the Philippines, one of the world’s top rice buyers, Việt Nam’s benchmark five per cent broken rice prices fell this week to $345-$360 per tonne on a free-on-board basis, the lowest in 11 months.

ASEAN  ANALYSIS

This year in Thailand-what next?


AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More

 








Indonesia  to launch 13th economic package this month

Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution said on Wednesday that the government would release its 13th economic policy package in August, adding that the draft had been completed.

Darmin said the 13th package was largely an extension of the previous one, but would expand its focus beyond industry. The 12th package focused on small and medium enterprises.

"We are just waiting to schedule a meeting with the president," Darmin told reporters at his office. He refused to give the exact date the new policy package would come into effect.

 The ministry team must meet with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo one more time to finalize the details, Darmin said.
