Cambodian Cashew Federation (CCF) president An Dara travelled to Vietnam last week for talk with the president of the Vietnam Cashew Association in Ho Chi Minh City. He announced on August 2 that the meeting aimed to promote closer cooperation between the CCF and their Vietnamese counterparts.
The meeting came as Cambodia has become the largest producer of cashews in the world. Vietnam is the world’s largest processor and exporter of the nuts.
Dara said the main purpose of the talks was to share mutual experiences, as well as to increase cooperation. He also wanted to encourage processing enterprises in Vietnam to buy raw materials directly from the Kingdom’s farmers and local communities, rather than going through brokers, which reduced the profit farmers saw from their labour.
