Cambodia exported much bigger volumes of agricultural products to Vietnam in the first eight months of this year, said the Vietnam Trade Office in Cambodia.

Cambodia exported nearly 2.4 million tons of paddy rice to Vietnam in the eight-month period, surging over 85.9 percent year-on-year. It also exported 23,230 tons of green beans to its neighbor, five times more than the same period last year.

Between January and August, Cambodia exported 355,550 tons of fresh manioc, or 75.7 percent of its total exported volume, to Vietnam. Meanwhile, it exported 869,540 tons of cashew nuts, or 99.2 percent of the total; and roughly 24.5 million tons of pepper, or nearly 100 percent of the total, to Vietnam.

Vietnam is the biggest buyer of Cambodian soya beans, maize, fresh manioc, cashew nuts, pepper and some kinds of fruit.

Cambodia earned $3.23 billion from agricultural produce exports, mainly rice, rubber, cassava, mangoes, fresh bananas, pepper, cashew nuts and corn in the January-August period, according to Khmer Times.
