Cambodia is showcasing its agricultural and industrial products under the “One Village, One Product” program at the Morodok Techo Stadium during the 32nd Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games). More than 200 local products are being displayed at stalls inside the stadium complex, according to Suong Noy, Secretary-General of the national committee for promoting the program.
The aim of the exhibition is to introduce Cambodian products to tourists and boost export promotion and job creation. The event showcases products from more than 20 booths of 45 enterprises over the 10-day SEA Games.
The “One Village, One Product” program was launched by the Cambodian government in 2006 to promote rural economic development. The campaign targets raising people’s living standards by improving local products, curbing labor migration to urban areas, and stepping up exports.
Under the program, each village focuses on producing a single product that best represents its local expertise and resources. The program provides technical support, training, and marketing assistance to help villagers develop their products to meet market demand.
The “One Village, One Product” program has been successful in promoting Cambodian products both domestically and internationally. The program has helped to create job opportunities in rural areas, reduce poverty, and increase income for small producers.
The program has also encouraged the development of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Cambodia. SMEs play a crucial role in the country’s economy by providing employment opportunities and contributing to economic growth.
Through the program, Cambodia has been able to showcase its unique culture and heritage to the world. The products produced by each village represent the diversity and richness of Cambodia’s local communities.
The “One Village, One Product” program has helped to strengthen Cambodia’s agricultural and industrial sectors, contributing to the country’s overall economic growth. By promoting local products, the program has helped to reduce the country’s reliance on imports and promote self-sufficiency.
