Vietnamese Goods on Sale in Cambodia

The second Cambodia-Vietnam Trade and Investment Fair opened in Kampot, Cambodia on August 24. The fair has attracted more than 50 Vietnamese and Cambodian businesses to display their high quality products, such as garment, footwear, food, chemicals, electronics, plastics and handicraft products. The aim is to help Vietnamese businesses develop their distribution network and improve their operational efficiency in Cambodia, especially in remote rural areas and also to encourage more Cambodian people to use Vietnamese products. The Vietnam Trade Office in Cambodia said that two-way trade turnover between Vietnam and Cambodia amounted to nearly US$1.6 billion in the first half of this year, up 59 percent compared to the same period last year. Vietnam’s exports to Cambodia were estimated at more than US$1.315 billion (VOV).
