PHNOM PENH (Xinhua): Cambodia's milled rice exports to the international market are expected to reach 800,000 tonnes in 2020, an estimated rise of 29 per cent from 620,106 tonnes last year, a senior agriculture official said on Wednesday (June 17).

Ngin Chhay, director-general of agriculture at the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, said the kingdom had seen a remarkable increase in rice exports in the first five months of this year due to high demand from the international market as a result of the Coivid-19 pandemic.
