Lemongrass Included in Cambodia’s Export List

AKP Phnom Penh, April 28, 2020 —

Lemongrass is one of the plants included in Cambodia’s list of exported goods to international markets.

The update was shared recently by H.E. Veng Sakhon, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, saying that Cambodia now can export its lemongrass.

The news followed Cambodia’s recent export of 0.02 tons of lemongrass to the Republic of Korea.

Though the amount of current export of the plant is low now, this is considered as a new record for the country’s agricultural exports.

Lemongrass is not only a special ingredient for food commonly used in Asian countries, but it can also be processed into beverage, medicine, cosmetics and beyond.
