Cambodia earns USD3B from agricultural products exports

PHNOM PENH (XINHUA) – Cambodia exported 7.62 million tonnes of agricultural products in the first 10 months of 2022, earning USD3.07 billion in revenue, according to a report released by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) yesterday.

Main products Cambodia exported included rice, bananas, mangoes, cassava, cashew nuts, corn, palm oil and pepper among others, the report said, adding that China is one of the key buyers of the products.

Cambodian Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Dith Tina said Cambodia and China have solid agricultural cooperation as Cambodia has enjoyed exporting milled rice, bananas, mangoes and, most recently, longans to China.

“I am confident that we can grow this relationship even more in the years to come,” he told Xinhua in a recent interview.

“The Chinese market still has much potential to absorb more Cambodian agricultural products and neither country has yet used the maximum potential in this sector.”
