In Brief: Rattan firms to unite

RATTAN suppliers and processors are due to meet today in Phnom Penh to form the country’s first rattan association with support from the global conservation group WWF and the European Union. It would aim to provide Cambodian producers with new knowledge and experience related to rattan, processing techniques, trade and markets, according to a joint press release. “The project identified that processors and exporters are not familiar with using the environmentally friendly production techniques and that there is lack of understanding about international market requirements,” WWF Rattan Project Manager Ou Ratanak said in the statement.
