Rice is right at trade fair

Indonesia is considering buying 300,000 tonnes of Cambodian rice, according to its ambassador.

Speaking at the Indonesian Trade Fair (pictured right) on Phnom Penh’s Diamond Island, Indonesian ambassador Soehardjono Sastromihardjo said that Cambodian rice imports were on the agenda.

“We want to import rice to our country. Now, we are looking for a lot [from Cambodia] – about 300,000 tonnes,” he said.

The ambassador hoped that trade between the two nations would also increase this year, perhaps by as much as 20 percent, and could be worth US$250 million in 2010. In addition, he said that Indonesia “wants to sell agricultural machinery to Cambodia, but now we are still in negotiations”.
