On August 8, 2020, Phnom Penh SEZ Plc. in collaboration with Dr. Mey Kalyan, Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP) and Mr. Ea Hoknym, Chairman of Aoral Silk Community located in Kompong Speu province, expanded planting over 3,500 of new mulberry trees in PPSEZ.
Providing mulberry leaves to RUPP’s Khmer Silk Centre and Aoral Silk Community to feed silkworms is a great contribution for silk production in response to a high demand for silk in Cambodia. Moreover, a lot of rural people are given job opportunities to work in silk production line in the community, and some are planting mulberry trees to supply the leaves to the community for extra income.
We believe that with the efforts of Dr. Mey Kaylan and the support of Mr. Ea Hoknym, the silk production will grow and bring benefits to Cambodia society.
