The objective of this project is (1) contribute to enhancement of the agriculture sector of the Kingdom of Cambodia  reflected in the national agenda by seeking ways to improve domestic and foreign investment promotion in agriculture development, (2) draw a master plan to install the coordination agency to promote agricultural investment in Cambodia; and (3) improve the capacity of human resources in the field of the agro-industry and domestic-foreign investment promotion by transferring Korea’s experiences and know-how.
During 18 months within three years from 2011~2013, this project is expected to draw a well-organized Coordination Agency specializing agriculture development, and enhance capacity in the field of agriculture development and investment promotion.
Be reminded that, Agriculture sector plays an important role in Cambodian socio-economic development, but this sector faces the difficulty in promoting both domestic and foreign investment because there is no enough information to be provided clearly. Therefore, through this project we hope that one master plan will be established which will be road map for agriculture investment promotion in Cambodia.
