EU to allow duty-free import of over 24,000 tonnes of Thai rice in October

The Commerce Ministry is getting ready to issue a certificate for exporting 24,883 tonnes of rice to the European Union under zero tariff in October.

Kirati Ratchano, deputy director-general of the Department of Foreign Trade, revealed on Tuesday that on September 22, the European Commission issued a notification on the remaining quota for white rice (white rice, Thai jasmine rice, Thai fragrant rice and parboiled rice) for October without limitations of import duty. EU importers are required to apply for an import licence within the first 10 business days of October.
Thai rice exporters who want to exercise their right and benefit from the said quota have until October 14 to apply for an EU export certificate.
