GMAC strikes export deals with Japan
Dec '08
It seems that trip to Japan was fruitful.

Van Sou Ieng, President Garment Manufacturers Association of Cambodia (GMAC) along with officials from the Council for the Development of Cambodia (CDC), union representatives and a delegation from the Commerce Ministry, recently visited Japan to fortify their trade relation.

According to GMAC, in the past years the country had been depending too much on the US market, now recession has hit the industry quite badly. In order to avoid losses in exports, Cambodia is seeking new markets.

While talking to reporters, GMAC President Van Sou Ieng said, "We will export around 10,000 jackets and 100,000 pairs of shoes in early 2009 to mark the beginning of trade exchanges with Japan and this deal represents an important step forward in trade relations between the two countries.”

The GMAC President further said, “We hope that Japan will make more purchase orders for Cambodian garments because Japan is the third-largest garment market in the world after the US and European Union."
