PHNOM Penh’s Small and Medium Industry Association closed a three-day exhibition on Cambodian products Sunday that showed local businesses have improved production, said Heng Heang, head of the association. “We also see that producers understand how to make high-quality products and have upgraded packaging that can be substituted for imported ones,” he said Friday at the opening.
