Cambodian People Urges for National Economic Scale
Phnom Penh, November 20, 2023 --
Cambodia’s Prime Minister Samdech Moha Borvor Thipadei Hun Manet called upon all to pay attention on the national economic scale.
Addressing at the official launching ceremony for the implementation of the 5th and 6th Priority Policy Programmes of the Royal Government, 7th Legislature of the National Assembly, Samdech Thipadei Hun Manet said economic scale is an important point that Cambodia should consider.
“If our nation hasn’t the right economic scale, we will be very difficult to compete with the other”, he underlined.
Moreover, if we don’t have clear economic scale, we also find it difficult to access to technology and receive detailed interventions, he added.
Samdech Thipadei Hun Manet said to be one of the 10 major agriculture exporters, Cambodia needs a proper economic scale. We should think of the common interests of the agricultural sector as a whole rather than the interests of any single company.
By early November, Cambodia has put 3.6 million hectares under rice in total and exported in total 6.2 million tonnes of agricultural products worth US$ 3.5 billion to 74 countries.
