Farmers Invited to a Workshop on AEC

A group of farmers have been invited to attend a forum where they can listen to and share their understanding on the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC).

This forum was organised here late last week by the NGO Forum on Cambodia through its Agriculture Policies Monitoring Project.

The purpose of the workshop was to disseminate the research launching on "preparedness of Cambodia small landholder farmers toward ASEAN economic community integration".

Mr. Tek Vannara, Executive Director of the NGO Forum on Cambodia, said the research aims to identify roles, challenges and opportunities of Cambodia small landholder farmers.

The study will raise the policy recommendations for supporting small landholder farmers both man and woman farmers on how to be well positioned in competition with other ASEAN member countries to protect the Cambodian agriculture for its food security and food sovereignty, as well as in the purpose to inform the policy makers and decision makers, added Mr. Tek Vannara.
