New deal resumes rice exports to China

Cambodia inked a new deal last week to export 100,000 tonnes of rice to China, according to local state media AKP.

The new rice quota, which will begin in early 2016, was announced on the sidelines of Prime Minister Hun Sen’s visit to China last week.

The deal comes six months after the Ministry of Commerce expressed interest in April to double its rice shipments to China from 100,000 tonnes to 200,000 tonnes.
