Cambodia’s agriculture sector urged to source own raw materials

During a discussion last week with Vietnamese Ambassador to Cambodia Vu Quang Minh, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Veng Sakhon asked the country’s help to buy paddy from Cambodian farmers in line with market prices in Vietnam.

Following the discussion, Vietnam said it will hold an emergency meeting with relevant businessmen and then submit a detailed report to the Vietnamese Prime Minister to encourage them to buy paddy from Cambodia at a reasonable price.
