For the record: The Bank is *not* warning about Thailand's rice export risks

This page in:

ImageI see there has been some blog chatter about the World Bank's position on Thailand's rice exports. Let me take the chance here to set the record straight: Thailand is a great international trading partner, it's commited to maintaining its rice exports, and we support this action. This is very important at this time of food price hikes and it's the responsible thing to do.

(The chatter --see some examples here and here-- started with a Bloomberg story  published yesterday).
