The Third Season of Buy Cambodian Campaign was launched in Kampong Chhnang province on April 5 under the presidency of H.E. Yim Chhay Ly, Deputy Prime Minister, Chairman of the Council for Agricultural and Rural Development, and Chairman of the National Committee for One Village One Product.
A Cambodian products trade fair was held on the occasion with the participation of 69 companies, associations and organisations. Different products ranging from agro-trade products, handicraft, construction materials to food and beverage, cosmetics and tourism and education services were displayed on 77 booths.
Besides, workshops and a consultation forum between buyers and sellers were organised in conjunction with the trade fair.
According to the Ministry of Commerce, after Kampong Chhnang, the campaign will continue to Banteay Meanchey, Prey Veng, and Koh Kong province and Phnom Penh capital.
The campaign is aimed to inspire Cambodian citizens to support and use home-made products, and thus to reduce the import of foreign products.
