Asean Plus Three Emergency Rice Reserve 


The Republic of Korea delivered 300 MT of rice or around 7,500 bags to Cambodia through the APTERR’s Tier 3 programme. The rice was completely unloaded and stored at the warehouses in Kampong Cham and Takeo provinces on 28 – 29 November 2021.

Cambodia led by the General Directorate of Agriculture, Ministry of Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries in close cooperation with the APTERR Secretariat is now planning to distribute the rice to people affected by COVID-19. Although the situation of COVID-19 in Cambodia is getting better, some parts of the country are still suffering from the impacts of this unprecedented pandemic.
