Cambodia's primary industry production has increased dramatically in recent years, ranking 10th in the world in case of rice production, and its position in the international market has increased to 9th in the world in terms of milled rice exports. However, even with such rapid progress in rice production, there are still many issues. For example, approximately 70% of rice is produced under rain-fed conditions due to the lack of irrigation development, and so measures to stabilize rice cultivation are highly needed. On the other hand, there are also high hopes for improving the quality of agricultural products domestically and internationally. Towards such improvements in quantity and quality, there are challenges such as a shortage of supplies of fertilizers and other materials due to climate change and unpredictable changes in the international social situation, as well as social needs of a shift to sustainable and circular cultivation technologies.
In this symposium, we will deepen our understanding about the current situation surrounding ASEAN countries and east Asian countries and provide information on the progress of Cambodian primary industries in recent years and efforts to resolve various issues mentioned above. Through our collaboration, we will demonstrate the emerging technologies and systems of Next-generation Circular Bio Economy, and discuss measures to deploy them for social implementation, and aim to contribute to strengthening the green agri-bioeconomy targeting 2030 and 2050 taking into account the Royal Government of Cambodia - Pentagonal Strategy: 1) Human Capital Development, 2) Economic Diversification and Competitiveness Enhancement, 3) Development of Private Sector and Employment, 4) Resilient, Sustainable and Inclusive Development, 5) Development of Digital Economy and Society.
