The United States is Cambodia’s single largest export destination, and Cambodia’s exports to the United States continue to grow. Access to U.S. markets provides significant economic opportunities for Cambodian companies and good jobs for Cambodian workers.
In 2018, Cambodia exported $3.8 billion worth of goods to the United States and imported $400 million worth of American goods.
The share of the U.S. market for Cambodia’s garments and footwear exports rose to 30% in 2018, up from 25% the year before. And, already, through the first five months of 2019, Cambodia has exported nearly $1.5 billion to the United States – a record amount.
