Cambodia exported more than 2.5 tonnes of rice to the Philippines for the first time

Cambodia exported around 2,575 tonnes of rice for the first time to the Philippine market. This was confirmed by Oknha Chan Sokheang, President of the Cambodian Rice Federation on Monday.

Speaking at the inauguration of the rice export market to the Philippines, Sokheng said that the first large-scale export was carried out by the Khmer Food Group and the efforts of the Royal Government, which is always trying to find a market for Cambodian rice.

In meetings with the heads of government of other countries, Prime Minister Hun Sen always asked his counterparts to buy more Cambodian rice, including the President of the Philippines, who visited Cambodia during the ASEAN Summit in Cambodia.

Pan Sosak, Minister of Commerce, praised the Rice Federation of Cambodia for its hard work and good cooperation with the Ministry of Commerce, especially Green Trade Company, leading to the opening of the rice market in the Philippines and asked to continue this activity for other markets.

Maria Amelita C Aquino, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of the Philippines, praised the growth of the rice trade and especially the export of Cambodian rice to the Philippine market. This work was started by Khmer Food Group with Filipino importers, as a model to show the potential of Cambodian rice to other importers to order rice from Cambodia. Kampuchea Thmey
