Some 3,432,601 tonnes of agricultural products, besides milled rice and paddy rice, have been exported to foreign markets during the first seven months of this year, despite the global COVID-19 crisis.
Recent report from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries shows that the exported agricultural products included cassava, cashew nuts, corn, fresh banana, pomelos, mangos, pepper, chili, and so on.
While the export of fresh cassava, oil palm, tobacco, and mixed vegetables saw a decline, that of fresh banana, pomelos, soybeans, mango products (fresh, jam, syrup), cashew nuts, beans, and pepper increased sharply, from 60 to over 500 percent, it underlined.
During the same period, the report added, Cambodia exported 85 types of agriculture products, apart from milled rice and paddy rice, to different countries around the world, generating an estimated income of about US$2,373 million.
