The event aims to promote Thai rice to reach more prospective consumers. Especially for the newly developed, high-quality soft white rice. This has been currently produced to meet Filipinos’ consumer demands in both price and quality. This also maintains the Thai rice percentage share in the Philippine market in accordance with the policy of Deputy Prime Minister and Commerce Minister, Jurin Laksanavisit.
