Thailand will export about 8.7 million tons of rice this year, ranking it the second largest exporter after India, the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) said Thursday. 

The figure would put Thailand's rice exports at "200,000 tonnes more than last projected and 2 million tons above the 2013 poor performance," the FAO's Rice Market Monitor said in its quarterly report.

India's exports would reach 9.5 million tonnes, and Vietnam's 7.2 million tonnes, it said.
