In the meeting, H.E. Dith Tina highlighted the potential of Cambodia's agricultural sector, such as paddy rice with a surplus of about 6 million tonnes per year for processing for export, as well as other potential crops such as cashew, cassava, and rubber.

Cambodia is a member of ASEAN with a wide market and has trade agreements with China, which is an opportunity for investment in processing for export, he said.

H.E. Mauro Vieira said Brazil plans to establish the Brazilian Embassy in Cambodia in early 2024 and wishes to increase relations in all fields between the two countries – Cambodia and Brazil, especially on investment and trade.

He also informed the Cambodian minister about the official visit to Cambodia by the Brazilian agriculture minister planned for 2024.
