Since 2001, Thailand Rice Convention has matured to its 8th edition. At bi-annual Thailand Rice Convention, the Department of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Commerce, in its capacity of the organiser, has had opportunities to welcome more than 800 rice traders in each round, creating a wide range of subjects of discussion and topics of convention. From "The Global Forum on World Rice Trade and Food Security", organised in Thailand Rice Convention 2013 at the Navy Hall bathed by the great view of the river Chao Phraya, to "Pushing ASEAN Towards the World's Rice Hub" beside cool breezes in Chiang Mai province, the Thailand Rice Convention series has never been so successful and exciting.
This year, in 2017, Thailand Rice Convention returned with its new concept
"RICE PLUS: NEXT STEP OF INNOVATION"
to take place in the heart of Thailand's capital Bangkok, at CentralWorld shopping complex and Centara Grand at CentralWorld hotel. As today, rice is now more than rice we used to know. Technologies and mind-blowing innovations are increasing the value of rice at the velocity never felt before.
