With the Cambodia-China Free-Trade Agreement (CC-FTA) coming into force on 1st January 2021, Cambodia’s private sector, including the country’s developing fresh produce industry, is preparing to take advantage of the Chinese market, according to Pen Sovicheat, undersecretary of state at the Ministry of Commerce (MoC). The ministry is working on and will soon release a full list of commodities that can be exported to China. This is intended to help the private sector to be aware of what can be exported and the criteria that must be fulfilled.

“I cannot say which products have a high potential and which products don’t. It is up to local production. However, we know we can export livestock, processed meat, fresh fruits, vegetables, rice, sesame, corn, bean, cooking ingredients and garments,” said Sovicheat.
