Rice Federation Positive about Cambodia-Korea FTA

The Cambodia-Korea Free Trade Agreement (FTA) will expand Cambodia’s rice export potential, according to the Cambodia Rice Federation (CRF).

The optimism was floated in a consultation meeting with concerned private sector chaired by H.E. Sim Sokkheng, Secretary of State of the Ministry of Commerce, here at the ministry on Tuesday.

Market expansion, added the federation, would also mean the reputation of Cambodia’s milled rice, especially the organic and brown rice will be better recognised.

The consultation aims to mobilise inputs from the private sector to build the foundation for the Cambodia-Korea Free Trade Agreement negotiations.

From his end, H.E. Sim Sokkheng highly appreciated the commercial and legal inputs from the private sector especially the Cambodia Rice Federation for his team to work on the FTA negotiation.
