Thailand is the biggest rice exporter in the world market. However, Thaifarmers (i.e., the rice producers) receive less financial benefits from the continuously increasing price of the rice products. Most of the farmers do not export by themselves. According to the research survey, more than 90 percent of the farmers in Ubon Ratchathani (province in Thailand) do not have the knowledge and ability to export. This case study highlights what the Thai government should do to support Thai farmers so that they might receive more benefits from exporting their rice. The results show that the Thai government can act as a key organization to fairly allocate benefits among stakeholders, such as farmers, middlemen, and exporting companies along with the rice private organizations. The Thai government also should integrate the different government sectors to smoothly enhancethe farmers’ productivity and quality.
