Garment, footwear, and travel goods manufacturing are important components of the manufacturing industry and are considered the main engines of growth for the Cambodian economy. Garment manufacturing alone accounts for 80 percent of Cambodia’s exports and employment of more than 600,000 workers, mostly women.

Garment (No.1) and footwear (No. 2) continue to be the two largest exports of manufactured products to Cambodia’s overseas markets. Food and beverage is another prospective sector of export products to overseas and there is an opportunity for manufacturers to take advantage of the tariff exemption programs that have been accorded to Cambodia by the US (under GSP), the EU (under the EBA), as well as under the provisions of various FTAs that Cambodia has signed with China and South Korea.
