Buoyed by year on year growth, the Kingdom’s agriculture sector remained positive about its growth potential this year, despite the looming threat of EU safeguard measures hanging over the country’s rice industry.
The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries expressed optimism that this year would be another good year for the sector, with ministry spokesman Srey Vuthy saying many agro-processing factories are expected to commence operation this year.
“We have a fresh fruit processing factory, a cassava processing factory and a rice storage and dryer ready for full operation this year. All of these will ensure the market and add value to our products,” he said.
