The Cambodian Ministry of Commerce is pushing its local exporters to seek for market in South Korea.

H.E. Cham Prasidh, Senior Minister and Minister of Commerce told Cambodian and South Korean businessmen in a seminar in Phnom Penh on Apr. 7 that South Korea is a potential market for Cambodian products.
