Siem Reap shows wares

AN estimated 70 NGOs and local enterprises launched an exhibition of Khmer goods in Siem Reap on Wednesday. The show, organised by the Cambodian Craftsman Association (CCA), was an attempt to promote the Kingdom’s goods and boost tourism to the city. Around 200 products made from silk, silver, paper, bamboo, cloth, reed and palm leaf were exhibited. Items included hats, tea bags and sculptures. According to the CCA, sales of its products decline 35 percent last year from US$2 million in 2008, to $1.3 million in 2009, as the economic crisis hit tourism and retail sales.
