Phnom Penh – Cambodia on Thursday exported its first batch of bananas directly to China as part of increased cooperation between the two countries within the framework of Belt and Road Initiative.
Cambodian Agriculture Minister Veng Sakhon and Li An, economic and commercial councilor of the Chinese embassy in Cambodia, attended a ceremony here marking the first shipment of the kingdom’s bananas to China.
“It is another milestone in agricultural cooperation between Cambodia and China, particularly under the Belt and Road Initiative,” Sakhon said, expressing his profound gratitude to China for opening its market broader for Cambodian agricultural produce.
