Vietnam’s rubber investment in Cambodia has been contributing significantly to the country’s economic growth.

Veng Sakhon, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, underlined so in a meeting with Mr Le Thanh Hung, General Director of the Vietnam Rubber Group (VRG) on Tuesday.

VRG’s rubber investment in Cambodia does not only help generate jobs for the locals, but also promote green landcover and rural infrastructure, he continued.

Roughly 109,526 tonnes of rubber production were achieved in 2021, and 140,000 tonnes were targeted for in 2022, according to the director general.
