Cambodia: New centre for agricultural research to help expand markets

China-based Digital Agriculture Exchange, aiming specifically to up quality standards and make Cambodian produce more desirable abroad has revealed plans to build an agricultural research centre in the kingdom to improve production and packaging standards of local fruit and vegetables.

A memorandum of understanding on the project was signed earlier this week by Veng Sakhon, Minister of Agriculture, and a representative of the Chinese company. The company’s work will largely centre on boosting the quality of local fruit and vegetables to increase demand for them -both locally and internationally- with China as the main target abroad.

A article explains how the Cambodian government is prioritising the establishments of such facilities to control the quality of its agricultural products before sending them abroad. A new centre in Kandal province, expected to come online in the next few months, will be used for cleaning and labeling produce before exporting it.
