Trade between Thailand, Cambodia grows 10%

Bilateral trade between Cambodia and Thailand reached $6 billion last year, up 10 percent from the year before, according to a Thai Embassy official. Jirawuth Suwanna-arj, minister counsellor at the Office of Commercial Affairs in the Thai Embassy, announced the figure yesterday at an event sponsored by the Thai Ministry of Commerce.

“We project that our bilateral trade will increase 10 percent more this year, since we joined the trade committee to solve all the challenges together,” he said. The event, held at Phnom Penh’s Sofitel hotel, sought to facilitate contacts between Thai and Cambodian businesses and featured 39 Thai companies that were looking for partners in Cambodia to distribute their goods.
