Cambodia to Start Direct Shipment of Sweet Corn to China

The Kingdom of Cambodia will begin direct shipment of its sweet corn to markets in China, after the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China (GACC) approved the list of registered exporting companies.

The good news was shared early this week by the Chinese Embassy in Cambodia, adding that Cambodia’s sweet corn has completed all export procedures and is allowed to be shipped to China.

Sweet corn is the second Cambodian agriculture product authorised to be exported directly to China in 2022, said the embassy, attributing the achievement to the practical cooperation between both countries.

Cambodia exported more than 2.4 million tonnes of its agricultural products worth US$1.942 million to the Chinese market from 2019 to the first half of 2022.

Cambodian major agricultural products exported to China include fresh banana, milled rice, dried cassava chips, cassava flour, mango jam, rubber latex, fresh mangoes, processed cashew nuts, cocoa powder, and so on.
