Workshop launched to assess WTO programme

The Ministry of Commerce yesterday launched a two-day workshop examining the effectiveness of the implementation of the WTO’s Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF) that includes its Cambodia Export Diversification and Expansion Programme II (CEDEP II) that began in 2014 and will end next year.

The $7.5 million CEDEP II programme was designed to help boost production of cassava, marine fishery products and the hospitality sector through the creation of the Academy of Culinary Arts Cambodia (ACAC).

The workshop will share best practices from the programme to promote long-term growth, development and trade.
