The Cambodia Export Diversification and Expansion Program (CEDEP) II is designed to strengthen and diversify export supply capacity in five of the nine Trade SWAp Pillar 2 sectors that have been identified by the Government as export sectors requiring immediate, priority action. They include: rice, silk, cassava, corn, fish, tourism, garment, processed food and manufacturing assembly. CEDEP II focuses on Cassava, Marine Fisheries Products, and Tourism (specifically, skill development for the hospitality sector through the creation of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts (RACA) intended to train kitchen and food-related staff for the hotel and restaurant sectors). It also includes an evaluation component, which intends to support the efforts of Department of International Cooperation (DICO) of the Ministry of Commerce to strengthen its capacity to monitor and evaluate substantive progress of Cambodia’s Trade SWAp. DICO serves as Cambodia’s Trade SWAp Secretariat and EIF National Implementation Unit (NIU).
