The initiative, led by Aquarii BD Cambodia and supported by organizations such as Khmer Enterprise and Swisscontact, received strong endorsement from key Cambodian government entities, including the Ministry of Industry, Science, Technology, and Innovation (MISTI) and the Ministry of Commerce (MOC). These endorsements underlined the event’s significance in presenting Cambodia not just as a market with potential but as one ripe for investment and growth.

During the seminar His Excellency Hem Vanndy, Minister of Industry, Science, Technology, and Innovation, also outlined the strategic sectors and pro-investment policies that make Cambodia an attractive destination.

“Our country offers distinct advantages in sectors ranging from technology to agriculture, creating a dynamic environment for investment that is eager for growth and development,” Minister Vanndy stated, emphasizing the government’s commitment to fostering a supportive business ecosystem.

Properly Pinpointing Sectors Of Opportunities For Investment

The seminar also facilitated vital discussions, with a roundtable with the Singapore Business Federation (SBF) allowing Singaporean business leaders and the Cambodian delegation to pinpoint sectors such as tourism, food, logistics, and e-commerce as particularly ripe for investment.

These discussions not only illustrated the reciprocal interest in economic cooperation but also helped identify concrete areas where Singaporean expertise and investment could be most beneficial. Furthermore, the event pointed Singaporean firms interested in entering or expanding within the Cambodian market towards Aquarii BD Cambodia and the Singapore Business and Investment Forum (SBIF).

The event attracted more than 100 Singaporean businesspeople and investors.

These platforms are designed to offer comprehensive resources, including guidance on market entry strategies, understanding of the regulatory environment, and networking opportunities, all aimed at smoothing their entry and ensuring successful ventures in Cambodia.
