Cambodia on track to export 1 million tonnes of rice in 2020

Cambodia could export a record one million tonnes of rice this year, buoyed by sustained demand stemming from Covid-19 uncertainty.

It’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries announced that the country had exported 350,000 tonnes of rice in the first five months of the year, to more than 60 countries.

Senior ministry official Ngin Chhay hopes rice exports may near the one million tonne mark if orders retain their momentum, or at least exceed 800,000 tonnes, reports the Phnom Penh Post.
