Cambodia and Brunei have agreed to explore the possibility of forging an agreement wherein Cambodia exports agricultural produce to Brunei, while Brunei supplies high quality fertilisers to Cambodian farmers at an affordable price.
The outline of the plan was discussed at a meeting between Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Dith Tina and Brunei’s ambassador to Cambodia Pengiran Kasmirhan Pengiran Tahir on December 29.
Tina posted to social media that Cambodia and Brunei have a really good relationship in trade and the agriculture sector, with Cambodia mainly exporting rice to Brunei, and noting that the leaders of both nations have the political will and desire to expand the relationship further.
“In the meeting, we agreed to look at the possibility of exporting other kinds of Cambodian produce such as cashews, peppers and mangos to Brunei, while we would import high quality fertilizer at a reasonable price to supply to our farmers,” Tina posted on social media on December 30.
He continued that this is an example of win-win cooperation in trade, as it is not just to strengthen diplomatic relations bilaterally, but also to benefit the people of both countries in the agriculture and business sectors through practical measures.
