Activities in this event will include cultural performances, demonstrations of rice-related traditions and farmers’ livelihood from the four regions of Thailand, as well as a workshop on cooking rice. Cheap rice retailing will also be available at the fair.
The event was initiated by the Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha to serve as a platform for good quality rice farmers from communities to be able to promote their products in Bangkok. This fair will be a good opportunity to create a direct connection between farmers and consumers, as well as increasing the rice value which will help encourage farmers income and livelihood.
