12:19 am
white gold that's tapped from the trees but now and probably province like many others the farmers have been dealt a double blow by world markets and one dispute in particular. global oversupply has driven the rubber price down forty percent over two years and the months long trade war between the united states and china has severely cut china's need for thai rubber. rubber farmer since he was a boy. is struggling but is skeptical of a subsidy program recently put in place by the military government the nato give them and try to help us but they just do it just to save face and fix the problem in the short term they don't think about the long term they subsidise the fifty eight dollars per fifteen hundred square meters of course we want money you know this program some economists see the subsidies as a quick fix as they are only a short term benefit for some of the local farmers here it does nothing to lessen
12:20 am
their reliance on the global price of rubber and what needs to happen next they say is more of a focus on innovation advancing the industry here less on export raw rubber as thailand heads towards its first election since the military coup five years ago some question the government's motivation behind subsidies rather than investing in the future of the industry they don't have enough dissent and they don't have. to do it at. they detest doing something that is evil and then get. because you do sing puppet. so well and then do coal but the government defends the subsidy program as the only way they can work with the farmers tell me who got yet if you don't have this program the farmers don't come to talk with us with it they cooperate with the government it probably is traditionally
12:21 am
a stronghold for the democrat party members campaigning out in the plantation they say the current program is bad for the farmers and will bring it to an end if elected although they'll guarantee a minimum price for rubber. but offer little detail of how they'll keep the industry going in the long term and how the people here will continue to live off their white gold it's got harder al-jazeera thailand. up next on the news our sport and why it always pays to look before you like. these everywhere and it's choking our planet very toxic and very dangerous and we could spend years painting if i allowed but breakthroughs are being made showing that it is possible to change our relationship with nate substance is simply not
