PHNOM PENH –Students and teachers from the Royal University of Agriculture will selling their products at the first Psar Nat market on July 15.
The market has been started by the university’s Business Development Center to offer student, teacher and community agriculture products for sale.
Sok Kimchhin, Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural Economics and Rural Development, said the market will cultivate students’ ideas for marketing and entrepreneurship.
Students and teachers will be able to promote their business plans, especially to sell their products — fresh and processed. There will also be agriculture products from the community.
The products include processed agriculture products, pickled cabbage, soy drink, chicken, leaf vegetables, cucumbers, eggplants, and other vegetables. The products will be sold from 10 booths, with each booth costing 1,000 riels per day.
The market is the first that the center has opened, and will be open on Saturdays in front of the university in Dongkor district.
“The market will pave the way for the students’ and teachers’ business plans and products to seek markets and broaden their buyer-and-seller network,” Kimchhin said.
The market will be a crowded place for the public and residents around the area to purchase and enjoy the agriculture products of the RUA in person. The dean said not only would the market contribute to the economy, but it would also cultivate the students’ business ability through practice, rather than only studying theories.
The dean hoped that the market would receive lots of support from the public and could be operated every weekend.
