Export prices remained unchanged from the previous week. The government reported that around 70 percent of the rice storage warehouses have been inspected so far. Around 80 percent of the government-owned rice (approximately 10 million metric tons) is in good condition, of which approximately 3 million metric tons are broken rice. The government plans to resume sales of its rice stocks next month after it completes the inspection of rice storage facilities.

As of July 27, 2014, the government reportedly received approximately 11.7 million metric tons of main-crop rice paddy (7.7 million metric milled equivalent – Table 2) under the MY2013/14 Main-Crop Rice Paddy Pledging Program at a cost of around 193 billion baht ($6 billion). As of July 24, 2014, the BAAC has reportedly paid approximately 192 billion baht ($5.9 billion) in loans to 1.5 million rice farmers for 11.6 million metric tons of pledged rice (7.6 million metric tons milled equivalent).
