The provincial OVOP committee has arranged for 20 booths to display the fruits and other products, with guests welcome to try a wide range of free samples. Additional goods will also be available for purchase, making this a fantastic opportunity to support local producers and take home a taste of Koh Kong.
The event is expected to generate a wider market for Koh Kong’s products and attract tourists eager to experience the region’s delicious fruit. Cambodia Women Entrepreneurs Association president Keo Mom has expressed her support for the exhibition, citing the province’s large number of women-owned handicraft businesses and the potential for new markets to open up for lesser-known provincial products.
