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.
