Thailand’s tough rice choices

The world’s largest rice exporter faces a worse-than-expected harvest this year.

The world’s largest exporter of rice is set to reap the rewards from higher demand in other countries.  

Thailand produces more than 20 million tonnes of rice each year, about half of which is exported. But this year’s harvest was worse than expected, and that could lead to higher prices on world markets.
