Commodities of the future

For aspiring punters in Cambodia's commodity market, Borint's detailed outlook for

the new year goes to the extent of predicting the value of various trading items

in the coming months.

In spite of the plague of floods, insects and disease predicted at the outset, Borint

says the outlook for crops, livestock and market goods will be mixed. The prices

of garlic, papaya, sugar and salt are expected to fall.

Smart investors, Borint says, will channel their riels into the purchase of cattle,

buffalo, fish, chickens, ducks, rice, cotton, ginger, limes as well as the usual

precious stones and metals.

The prices of tamarind, sugar cane, coconut, chili and tobacco will remain stable.
