The wait is on rice sales by the government, but do not shoot because Thai rice is too expensive.

Meanwhile, the price of Thai rice exports dropped sharply and the gap with Vietnamese rice minimal. Earlier, Thai rice $ 100 more expensive. The price could still go further down, because foreign buyers know that the Government has a huge stock and that the system is actually bankrupt.
