A group of Cambodian farmers will travel to South Korea to study agricultural techniques and work as part of a programme backed by the Korea International Cooperation Agency (Koica).

A total of 19 farmers have been chosen by the General Directorate of Agriculture to partake in the initiative, which seeks to boost agricultural standards in the Kingdom.

Sam Vitou, executive director at the Cambodian Centre for Study and Development in Agriculture, said the programme will help participants understand agricultural processes and techniques in other countries, including the use of advanced techniques and equipment.

“I support this idea. It will help our agricultural sector advance,” he said. “Since 2003, our centre has also sent farmers to study and work in other countries, including Vietnam, Nepal, India, the Philippines, and France. We want our farmers to see how other countries in the world practice agriculture.”
