Cambodian rice industry not quite the polished article

CAMBODIA is on a difficult path to boost its milled rice exports in a sustainable way but has seen some notable successes of late that give rise to belief it can be a more major player soon.
Cambodian rice exports surged to as high as 175,000 tonnes in 2011, vastly more than the 50,000 tonnes in 2010 and 10,000 tonnes the year before that. This is miniscule against the 35m tonnes of rice traded around the world each year, while Vietnam and Thailand have exported upwards of 7m tonnes recently. But given that a combined 3.5m tonnes of paddy is moved (unofficially) to its more established neighbours each year, there is scope for Cambodia to improve on this.
