BILATERAL trade between Cambodia and Hong Kong saw a slight improvement of around 4 percent in the first two months of 2010, compared to the same period last year, data from the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) showed Thursday. The figures stated bilateral trade increased to more than US$71 million in January and February, a rise of 4.4 percent on the first two months of 2009. Hong Kong’s total exports to Cambodia went up 3.5 percent to $68 million. Cambodian exports saw growth of around 23.8 percent to $3 million, around $1 million of which was re-exported from Hong Kong. Sok Sopheak, director general of the International Trade Department of the Ministry of Commerce said the jump was due to increased garment production.
