Cambodian Rice Is Produced In Cambodia, Not Vietnam

By Kong Putheara

In the story “Rice-Exports Alliance Rejects EU Accusations” (December 23), I was quoted as saying that “some of our rice millers take rice and hire Vietnamese millers to mill it and then bring it back to Cambodia for export.”

I would like to clarify that the rice exported to the European Union. is 100 percent made in Cambodia.

All aspects of the rice production are completed in Cambodia; moreover, the rice is also checked and issued a certificate of origin before being exported from Cambodia.
