The export of Cambodian fresh chili has seen a remarkable increase in the past five years, affirmed H.E. Veng Sakhon, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in a Facebook post this morning.

According to H.E. Minister, some 55,513 tonnes of fresh chili were exported in 2019, up from 15,494 tonnes in 2018, 1,750 tonnes in 2017, 1,490 tonnes in 2016, and 1,002 tonnes in 2015.

The main market for Cambodian fresh chili is Thailand, added H.E. Veng Sakhon.
