Economy and Industry

Cambodian exports are impacted by a slowdown in major markets The General Department of Customs and Excise said that the value of garment exports in the first four months of 2023 fell by 28% from the same period last year to $1,394 million. Exports of travel-related goods also fell by 23% to $515 million. Overall, exports to important markets like the United States, EU nations, Japan, and South Korea decreased. In the first four months of 2023, exports to the US fell by 16% to $2,449 million, while exports to Japan and South Korea both saw declines of 4.5% and 19%, respectively. The Ukraine crisis, according to Ministry of Commerce Undersecretary of State and Spokesman Penn Sovicheat, produced a systemic shock to global economic growth, which has restrained consumer spending everywhere. As a result, Cambodia has seen a decline in orders. (Source: Khmer Times)
