Vietnam, Thailand to supply NFA with 203,000 metric tons of rice

The National Food Authority (NFA) on Wednesday ordered a total of 203,000 metric tons (MT) of rice from Vietnam and Thailand, according to a report of Maki Pulido on Balitanghali.

Thailand offered the lowest bid of $469.80 per metric ton of rice—lower than the NFA's reference price of $470—but it could not meet the 203,000 metric tons that the NFA demanded.

Thailand can only supply 80,000 metric tons of rice, the report said.

Due to this, NFA gave Vietnam the chance to match Thailand's bid.

Vietnam cut its original bid of $470 per metric ton to level with Thailand’s bid, and will now supply the remaining 123,000 MT required by the Philippines.

The imported rice will arrive before the year ends at the price of P27 per kilo. — Joviland Rita/BM, GMA News

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011

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
