Cambodian bird’s nest producer aiming more big exports
PHNOM PHEN (Rasmei Kampuchea Daily/ANN) - The Cambodia Bird's Nest Federation is urging the government to further help its producers and support for the exports of the bird's nest.
The federation’s secretary general Mr. Meav Soktry said Cambodian bird’s nest products have been recognised among the best regional producers.
If the government, can support the expansion of the exports especially to China, it will inspire domestic bird’s nest producer to possibly ten times of current production volume that will potentially generate an annual total sale of US$ 300 million, he added.
Cambodia has now between 2,000 and 3,000 bird’s nest producers across the country, particularly in Phnom Penh capital, and other provinces, including Kampong Cham, Kampot, Koh Kong, and Preah Sihanouk.
They are producing an average of 10 to 20 tons of bird’s nest products and 60 percent are exported to Japan, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
