The semiconductor crisis is now over for Cambodia's automotive industry according to the industry insider Industry insiders claim that the demand-supply imbalances that were caused by the global chip shortage in the country's vehicle industry are no longer present. They claim that after a protracted period of supply issues brought on by the industry's more than two-year epidemic season, the nation's auto market has stabilized and is "absolutely out of the woods." The country's automotive industry is no longer being negatively impacted by the worldwide chip crisis, according to Saing Ngorn, Chief Executive Officer and Country Head of RMA Cambodia. "Over the past two years, the chip crisis has proven to be a major problem for both automakers and distributors, particularly when it comes to satisfying customer demand. It started to ease around the beginning of 2023, and now I can say that the country's automobile sector is no more facing such a crisis." Ngorn explained. (Source: Khmer Times)

Prime Minister Hun Sen stated that one of the government's new strategies to change a broad agricultural development approach to a comprehensive one is research on high-productive paddy seeds.
