Chinese investment to drive presence of Cambodian agricultural products in international markets
As more investments from Chinese companies pour into Cambodia and cooperation in the field of agriculture increases, Cambodian agricultural products are expected to be promoted in more international markets, especially the Chinese market.
Minister Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, Veng Sakhon, received a delegation from various companies to discuss cooperation in the field of agriculture between Cambodia and China on January 17.
“Cambodia is a friend of China and in recent years the two sides have agreed to establish a full strategic partnership,” Minister Sakhon said. The Cambodian-Sino agricultural cooperation was launched during the first Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation. The cooperation led to a number of companies to invest in Cambodia’s agricultural sector.
These investment aims to develop Cambodia’s agricultural sector to ensure supply, quality, safety and export market standards. The Minister hopes that the investments will boost the presence of the country’s agricultural product in the international market.
The comprehensive strategic partnership agreement between the two countries have attracted many Chinese investment in Cambodia, with the fruit production sector seeing more development.
Minister Sakhon thanked China, its embassy and the General Administration of Customs for their cooperation in inspecting and evaluating the quality and hygienic requirements of Cambodian mango and turmeric products. The investments and cooperation will further develop Cambodia’s agricultural sector and its sustainability. Khmer Times
