In Brief: Rural trade fair to start

A rural trade fair will take place across four provinces over the next two months in a bid to boost trade within Cambodia. The events should see 60 booths showcasing the best in local goods. Curtis Hundley, head of Cambodia Strengthening Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, a body set up to promote rural trade development, said the fair would start in Kampot on Saturday, before moving to Kratie and then Siem Reap, eventually finishing in Battambang. "We aim to promote domestic trade and create a fun time for local traders," Hundley said. It is funded by USAID.
