AKP Phnom Penh, September 03, 2020 —

Scores of agricultural machinery have been donated to the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries (MAFF) to contribute to modernising the agricultural work in Cambodia.

The handover ceremony was held here on Sept. 3 in the presence of Minister H.E. Veng Sakhon, and representatives of China-based Zoomlion Heavy Industry and Technology Co., Ltd.

On the occasion, H.E. Veng Sakhon thanked the firm, saying that the agricultural machinery will contribute to promoting agricultural modernisation, which will improve productivity, ensure capacity and quality of supplies.

He also expressed his gratitude to the Chinese government for encouraging Chinese firms to invest in Cambodia, particularly in agricultural sector, which is to enhance the food safety in the country.

The company signed last December a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the MAFF on the promotion of agricultural mechanisation and the applications of intelligent technologies.

Under the MoU, Zoomlion will provide intelligent solutions and send technicians to Cambodia to facilitate the upgrade of local farming industries. Zoomlion’s goal is to achieve the sustainable development of its agricultural equipment business in Cambodia.
