Export prices increased 1 to 2 percent from the previous week due to tighter supplies of white rice. The military government still has a hold on the movement of government-owned rice stocks while they continue inspections of rice storage facilities. The Ministry of Commerce reported that around half of the approximately 18 million metric tons of rice stocks have been inspected so far. Inspectors have found that approximately 20 percent of the rice stocks have quality problems. The military government plans to complete its inspections by the end of July.

As of July 13, 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 9, 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 pledges (7.6 million metric tons milled equivalent).
