Cashews: sheer incredible exports give rise to speculations
HANOI/NEW DELHI. Cambodia shipped an incredibly high volume of 836,000 mt raw cashew nuts to Vietnam between January and April as the Vietnam Cashew Association (Vinacas) reports. Total shipments from Cambodia to Vietnam, by contrast, ranged at a much lower 219,000 mt in 2020. Although Vietnam has indeed drastically stepped up imports, this cannot fully explain the sharp rise in shipments from Cambodia. Prices have taken a rather surprising turn in Europe. Traders are hoping for a sustained recovery in India, where the devastating surge in Covid-19 infections basically brought parts of the market to a standstill.
