The contract aims to strengthen the Cambodia-Japan corporation in the agricultural sector. Cambodia and Japan will be mainly focusing on the cultivation processes and packaging techniques while keeping a close eye on local demands and market preferences. From the Cambodian side, producers will need to maximize production capacity. Additionally, this deal will be able to attract more investments in Cambodia. 

The signing ceremony was presided by H.E Veng Sakhon, Minister of Agriculture, and H.E Masahiro Mikami, the ambassador to Cambodia, at the office of MAFF on July 15. Moreover, other relevant authorities and officials also attended. 

"This contract reflects Japan’s willingness to assist Cambodia with technical and financial support to meet the demand of the market," said Veng Sakhon, Minister of MAFF.

He also hoped that the agreement would trigger the transformation of family-sized farming to agri-industrial production.

The Minister also emphasized the importance of producing products with high quality and safety. 

On the bright side, he hoped that this production chain can improve our economy and modernize our agricultural practices, which will enable our local products to compete in the global market.
