Cambodia's export has seen a 30 percent rise in the first 10 months of 2013 thanks to the surges in the exports of garment, milled rice, and rubber, trade data showed Wednesday.
The Southeast Asian nation has exported goods in a total value of 5.87 billion U.S. dollars during the January-October period this year, up 30 percent compared with the 4.5 billion U.S. dollars over the same period last year, said the data of the Ministry of Commerce.
The country's main trading partners are the United States, European countries, China, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore and Malaysia.
Kong Putheara, chief of the statistics and planning department at the Ministry of Commerce, said the remarkable rise in export was due to the increases in the exports of garments, milled rice, and dry rubber.
"With the government's efforts to seek new markets for Cambodian products, I believe that the country's export will continue to grow from year to year," he said.
According to the data, garment export rose by 24 percent in the first 10 months this year to 4.76 billion U.S. dollars, while rice export went up by 91 percent to 187 million U.S. dollars and dry rubber export earned 146 million U.S. dollars, up 16 percent.
