King Norodom Sihamoni promulgated a law that provides reciprocal protection of investments between Cambodia and Belarus, according to an announcement on a government website.

Major Belarusian exports to Cambodia include tractors and their spare parts, fertilisers and tyres. Cambodia’s chief exports to Belarus are agricultural products, textiles and footwear.

Last year, a joint tractor-making factory opened in Cambodia.
