Cambodia has exported tobacco to five countries, said Veng Sakhon, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.
The Minister pointed out that during this period, the exported tobacco products amounted to 5,376 tonnes.
The main destinations for Cambodian tobacco products were Vietnam, Greece, Belgium, Indonesia and Hungary, he added.
The areas along the delta of Mekong, Tonle Sap and Tonle Bassac, which are rich in sediments, are known to be the potential areas for tobacco growing.
Tobacco farmers in Tbong Khmum province, the country’s largest tobacco growing area, said tobacco cultivation has seen a decrease in the last few years due to market fluctuation. Heng Panha – AKP
