I. Introduction
The Kingdom of Cambodia is located in the Southeast Asian mainland, and endured an unfortunate history in the 1970s popularly known as, “The Killing fields.” It suffered from civil war in the 1980s, and a new government was established after general elections under the auspice of the United Nations Transitional Authority of Cambodia in 1993. During these periods of political instability, most of the social and industrial infrastructure had been destroyed. Now Cambodia imports most of its industrial products and even fresh vegetables.
