Date set for forum on agriculture

The Ministry of Commerce will hold the seventh national forum on promoting and implementing agro-business policies, an announcement said on Thursday.

The four days of meetings will be held in Siem Reap province from November 8 to 11. It will host more than 100 booths related to agriculture products for fruit, vegetable, rice and silk farming.

Aimed at increasing local activity within the sector, the forum hopes to turn entrepreneurs and the public to local products rather than imported ones, according to the release.
