The ‘made in Cambodia’ brand takes the spotlight as the 12th edition of the Cambodia Import-Export & One Province One Product Exhibition kicks off in the capital’s Diamond Island next week.
The event will take place from December 12 to 15, welcoming producers from every corner of the country.
Meas Vireak, owner of Wild Grape Wine Pursat, said yesterday he will not miss out on the opportunity to promote his business and products.
“We will join the event again this year because last year we sold all our products and many people got to know about our wines,” he said.
“Now we would like to ask the ministry to do the exhibition three times a year.”
Bun Ruby, marketing manager of Oeng Sothy Group, a date palm producer, said the fair is a great platform from which to introduce your product to the local consumer.
“Last year we sold everything we brought, so we knew we wanted to attend again this year,” he said.
Minister of Commerce Pan Sorasak, speaking during the inauguration of last year’s expo, said local producers were upping their quality standards and producing better products every year.
“Domestically produced goods are becoming more popular. They can now compete with imported products,” said Mr Sorasak.
He also said the expo offered many opportunities for networking.
“Producers can learn from others and the networks they develop will be valuable for their businesses,” he said.
There were 295 exhibitors and 323 stalls in last year’s expo.
