End to the controversy surrounding the availability of ration rice in the local market. The State Trading Corporation (STC), the body responsible for the importation and distribution of essential commodities, decided to remove the quota of rigor taxable merchants.
So far, a certain amount of rice whose price is subsidized by the state was sold to merchants so they do not sell them more expensive or do not re-exports. STC, which discovered the "artificial shortage" two weeks ago, decided to change his tune to neutralize the rogue traders.
Indeed, in early November, consumers and associations lamented the unavailability of the new cargo of rice in some stores. They had to spend twice as much for rice "long grain" in order to eat their fill.
Suttyhudeo Tengur, president of the Association for the Protection of the environment and consumers had argued that the shortage was no doubt due to floods in Thailand. But STC indicated that the rice ration imported from India these days is a victim of its good quality.
