Kampot trade down

Kampot trade down l KAMPOT – The number of trucks carrying goods from Vietnam into Kampot province across the Prek Chak international checkpoint fell 20 percent in October compared with the same month a year earlier. Hong Darareth, deputy chief at the checkpoint, blamed falling purchase orders resulting from the economic slowdown. Almost all cross-border trade is of vegetables and other consumable goods produced in Vietnam, he said. The number of foreign tourists crossing into Cambodia at the border dropped to 1,000 in October from 1,330 in September, but Hong Darareth said it was a normal fluctuation.
