FAR EAST: 3-nation forum urged to boost rubber prices

The issue was discussed during a meeting between Prayut and Malaysian Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein at Government House in Bangkok. Hishammuddin co-chaired the Thai-Malaysian General Border Committee with Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwan on 29 Jan. 2015. On 30 Jan. 2015, the Malaysian minister paid a courtesy call on Prayut. Government spokesman Yongyuth Mayalarp quoted Prayut as saying that the tripartite meeting is urgently needed to find a joint measure to set rubber prices for farmers in the three countries. Yongyuth said the host country for the meeting would be decided at a later date. The Malaysian minister said he would convey the message to his prime minister and coordinate with the countries' economic ministers on the matter. Source: Daily The Nation, Bangkok; 31 Jan 2015
