Global Economic Recovery, Higher Rice Output Behind Rise In Rice Export Target

As the global economy continues to recover from the devastating effect of Covid-19 and crisis caused by the Russia-Ukraine war and aggravated by adverse weather conditions around the world, Thailand’s Rice Exporters and rice suppliers remain optimistic to cash in on opportunities to export bulk rice.

In January itself, the Asian nation exported 8,05,000 tonnes of rice, a 75% YoY rise owing to higher demand from the Middle East nations and a weaker baht. Back in 2022, Thailand’s rice export stood at 7.69 million tonnes.
