AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT

Cambodian Agricultural Production

The agricultural sector, including rice farming, livestock, forestry, and cultivation of other crops, directly employs more than 65% of Cambodia's labor force and accounts for almost 35% of GDP. With its large amount of arable land, ample rainfall, large workforce and close proximity to the major ASEAN markets of Thailand and Vietnam, Cambodia has unrivalled potential in the agriculture sector.

Arable Land Per Capita (ha/person)

Grand Lion Group seeks to become Cambodia's premier agricultural developer and operator and the Group is constantly evaluating opportunities in the sector. We seek to improve agricultural productivity and long-term profitability through:

  • Capital development of land and water (particularly irrigation) assets.
  • Implementing modern agricultural management techniques with reliance on international expertise where appropriate.
  • Working collaboratively with local communities to provide skilled, safe and sustainable employment opportunities.
  • Protecting the environment.
  • Improving access to isolated rural areas through the construction of agricultural roads and improving water transport infrastructure.
