Summarized by Joy Kristel L. Orzales

The Cambodian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries announced its plan to expand the country’s longan exports to new markets. The ministry is currently working on export requirements such as sanitary and phytosanitary requirements to reach countries with strict policies.

Cambodia yields about 20,000 tons of longan annually from more than 8,800 hectares, according to the ministry. Only two provinces export the fruit to other countries.
