In Brief: ADB announces agriculture training

THE Asian Development Bank announced a US$2 million grant to support agricultural training in post-harvest food handling, storage and processing, it said late Tuesday. The government and aid agencies have been working to increase Cambodia's processed-food exports by expanding storage capacity and boosting quality control. The training would include 3,000 agricultural producers, the ADB said in a statement. It said a Japanese grant would cover 86 percent of the program, with the rest coming from the government, NGOs and other organisations.
