In the interview, he said that : “Our main business is agriculture- with rice as our top priority. We have chosen Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) as our investment partner for our business growth and expansion. I joined the Indo-Pacific Forum since 2019. I gained a lot of experience from our network and learned a great deal about financing policies from our international business partners, particularly from the Indo-Pacific region. It is an opportunity to strengthen our businesses to be more competitive in the future. I would like to recommend you, especially Cambodian entrepreneurs who are interested in strengthening and expanding their businesses, to contact the Ex-Im bank of the United States for the access to low-interest loans to grow your business and exports.”
