Foreign Trade Department denies dumping rice in world market

The Foreign Trade Department Friday urgently clarified that Thai government has never neither dumped rice prices in the world market after there was a report that the country might be at risk of breaching the World Trade Organisation's rule on rice dumping.

The United States and some others nations have sounded warning noises at the World Trade Organisation because of Thailand's lack of transparency on sales and stocks.

Director general Surasak Riangkrul denied a report on the Thai government's dumping rice in the global market. Though it ever sold rice to Indonesia under the Government to Government deal basis, the selling price was not below the market price as alleged.
