Some 4,221,153 tonnes of agricultural products, besides milled rice and paddy rice, have been exported to foreign markets during the first ten months of this year, despite the global COVID-19 crisis.

The figure represents an increase by 47.72 percent compared to the same period in 2020, pointed out a recent report from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries.

According to the source, the exported agricultural products included cassava, cashew nuts, corn, fresh banana, pomelos, mangos, pepper, chili, and so on.

While the export of corn, tobacco, and mixed vegetables saw a decline, that of pomelos, mango products (fresh, jam, syrup), cashew nuts, beans, soybeans, and pepper increased sharply, between 120 and over 400 percent, it underlined.

In brief, the report said, from January to October Cambodia exported almost 84 types of agriculture products, apart from milled rice and paddy rice, to different countries around the world, generating an estimated income of about US$2,833 million.
