Lemongrass has been included in Cambodia’s list of exported goods to international markets.
The update was provided by Veng Sakhon, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, who said that Cambodia can now export its lemongrass.
The news followed Cambodia’s recent export of 0.02 tons of lemongrass to the Republic of Korea.
Though the amount of current export of the plant is low now, this is considered as a new record for the country’s agricultural exports.
Lemongrass is not only a special ingredient for food commonly used in Asian countries, but it can also be processed into beverage, medicine, cosmetics and beyond. Lim Nary/AKP
