White Gold - The Cambodian Rice Market
Although strong economic growth is taking place in Cambodia's capital city, rural Cambodia - home to 80% of the country's population - remains impoverished. In order to raise the standard of living there, the government has turned its attention to the production of processed rice - otherwise known as white gold. In spite of various obstacles, a rise in the annual export volume has been achieved and in this episode of Asia Insight, we follow domestic and international efforts to further boost the Cambodian rice market.
