Mill owners to share European experience

GOVERNMENT officials and representatives from the rice mills will meet today in order to share their experiences of exporting rice to Europe.

Thun Vireak, manager of the state-run Green Trade Company, said yesterday that the group would meet at the Ministry of Commerce in order to raise concerns and discuss their experiences of operating in the eurozone.

“The main purpose of our meeting today is to advertise what the European market needs in order to help local rice traders form a base for export there,” Thun Vireak said.

The meeting follows a trip made by eight rice mill owners earlier this month to Belgium, France, Poland, the Netherlands and Germany to meet with middlemen, traders and rice processors.

Thun Vireak said the mill owners would share what they had learned.

Ny Ly Heng, deputy director of Baitang Kampuchea, said that the sharing of information would help strengthen rice exports in the future.

“We need an appropriate period of time to get our rice known,” he said.

Last September, the EU provided rice tax preferences to least-developed countries.
