Enough rice for export, say Thailand and Cambodia


Singapore's rice imports from Thailand and Cambodia will not be affected, despite inundated padi fields there.

The ambassadors for the two flood-hit countries gave reassurances on Sunday that there would be enough rice for export.

'Of course there will be less output this year, but I think there will be enough for export and for the consumption inside Thailand,' said the Thai Ambassador to Singapore, Mr Nopadol Gunavibool, on Sunday.

He was speaking to media on the sidelines of an event to raise funds for flood victims in the two countries and the Philippines.
