Assistant army chief Gen Chatchai Sarikalya, deputy chief of the NCPO supervising economic affairs, had a meeting with representatives of government organisations, rice millers and rice growers to discuss assistance for farmers at the Army Club on Vibhavadi Rangsit Road in Bangkok on Wednesday.

After the meeting, Gen Chatchai said that participants agreed with the idea of a "cultivation subsidy" and soft loans for rice growers nationwide in the 2014/2015 crop season.
