Prime Minister of Thailand, Aphisit Vejjajiva, declared before few weeks earlier that certainly those foreign nationals are not allowed to involve in livestock or rice farming nor lease or owns any agricultural land relating to such businesses. It seems that this declaration is due to different benefits through stockholders in the Gulf state.

The Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) states, which include the countries like Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, conveyed a wish for particular existing laws in Thailand to be relaxed such as food shortage anxieties are great on the program for the infertile citizens in the county. The deficiency of appropriate undeveloped zone in these countries mean that they are obligatory to invent substitute, it means to certify a protected stock of agro-products to endure their upcoming expansion.

Even though such requirements seems that Aphisit Vejjajiva prepared a declaration authorizing that such preparation is set aside just for Thai residents. Perhaps it is not such an excessive disclosure in the present Foreign Business Act of 1999, by the way which hasn’t altered, specifies that this part of business is limited to Thai residents for some unusual causes.

Definitely, rice agribusiness is measured a nationwide image in numerous methods exemplifies the typical core of Thai personality. May be the Prime Minister is aware from it and searching to it. Though, whether the extension of these resist events beneath the FBA which is reflected as healthy for our FDI besides this normally our economy rests to be realized.
