  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The Cabinet agreed to allocate a budget of 60.36 billion baht (U.S. $1.98 billion) for three agricultural price subsidy programs for small rice and oil palm farmers. These programs are seen as the government’s action to keep its promise from the General Election campaign in early 2019 that Thai farmers must have better livelihoods through higher incomes from their farming.
