Argentina's New Government May Reduce


Export Taxes on Rice, Says USDA Post
Nov 30, 2015

The newly elected government of Argentina, which will take office from December 10, 2015, is
proposing a series of agricultural policy changes that could have a significant impact on domestic
and international markets, says USDA Post.
The new government's proposals are expected to spur exports and lead to significant increase in
the sales of Argentine agricultural commodities, including rice, in the global market. Currently,
export taxes for rice are between 5-10%.
Based on the President-elects agricultural advisory team and other reports, the Post reports that
the government is proposing to eliminate all export license schemes first developed in 2006;
eliminate reference prices and maximum process; eliminate export taxes for rice and other
agricultural products; and streamline all other taxes, including value-added tax. It is however
proposing to gradually reduce export taxes for soybeans and its by-products by 5% every year.

Taiwan has completed tenders for the 2015 U.S. rice country specific quota (CSQ) of 64,634
tons on November 17, according to the USDA Post. The Simultaneous-Buy and Sell (SBS) quota
of 35,600 tons for the year is already complete.
As of October 29, 2015, Taiwan has completed normal tenders for 53,750 tons or about 83% of
the 2015 U.S. rice country specific quota (CSQ) of 64,634 tons. On November 17, Taiwan
completed tenders for the remaining 10,884 tons of U.S. long- grain brown rice for delivery by
June 30, 2016. While four bidders participated in the tender, the entire 10,884 tons were awarded
to one successful bidder at NT$21,054/MT (around $642.28 per ton).

Based on the revised 2015 rice production estimate by the Statistics Korea (KOSTAT), USDA
Post forecasts South Korea's 2015 rice production (basis, milled) at around 4.33 million tons, up
about 2% from around 4.24 million tons in 2014 despite a decline in acreage due to favourable
weather conditions and an expected increase in yields.
The Post expects the yield per hectare to increase about 4% to around 5.416 tons in 2015 from
around 5.2 tons in 2014. Based on the data released by the Statistics Korea (KOSTAT), the Post
forecasts 2015 paddy rice acreage at around 799,000 hectares, down from around 816,000
hectares in the previous year. South Korea's paddy acreage has been declining since 2001 due to
a greater demand from housing and building complexes and conversion of rice paddy land to
upland for production of more profitable cash crops.
The Post forecasts South Korea's MY 2015-16 ending stocks (November - October) at around
1.6 million tons, up about 38% from an estimated 1.14 million tons in MY 2014-15.
Consequently, the Post forecasts MY 2015-16 stocks-to-use ratio (ending stocks/consumption) at
a record 36% due to an expected decline in consumption.

Thailand Rice Exports Decline Sharply in


First Ten Months of 2015
Nov 30, 2015

Thailand exported around 7.814 million tons of rice in the first ten months of 2015, down about
11% from around 8.77 million tons exported during the same period last year, according to data
from Thai Rice Exporters Association (TREA). In value terms, Thailand rice exports earned
around $3.643 billion, down about 15% from around $4.31 billion earned during the same period
last year.
In October 2015, Thailand exported around 1.2 million tons of rice, up about 67% from around
720,554 tons exported in September 2015, and slightly down about 1% from around 1.214 tons
exported in October 2014. The increase can be mainly attributed to an increased demand from
the Philippines and Indonesia.
In value terms, Thailands rice exports earned about $487.33 million from total rice exports
during the month, up about 46% from around $332.89 million earned in September 2015, and up
about 17% from around $415.36 million earned in October 2014.
