Cambodia to export corn to China

05.07.2017

Cambodia’s government is working to promote corn exports to China, which has already signed an agreement but first requires local corn to comply with its sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) requirements. “We are trying to expand our market to China, since we already agreed on the potential crops for export,” said Lor Reaksmey, spokesman of the Ministry of Agriculture.

“But we are now preparing the SPS criteria to comply with their requirements. Then we will able to export directly.” The Ministry of Agriculture data shows total corn exports reached 70,487 tonnes last year, a 25% increase over 2015.
