Michel Cassagnes, Chairman of EuroCham Cambodia’s Real Estate and Construction Committee and EuroCham Vietnam’s Construction Sector Committee will provide closing remarks at the forum. “As someone deeply involved in the construction sectors of both Cambodia and Vietnam, I am thrilled to witness the Tall Building Forum’s continued growth and expanding regional reach,” he said. “This powerful event is a testament to the value of cross-border collaboration and our collective commitment to developing tall, sustainable buildings across Southeast Asia.”

Martin Brisson, Executive Director of EuroCham Cambodia, expressed enthusiasm for the upcoming forum, stating, “We are excited to host the Tall Building Forum once again, this time with our partners at EuroCham Vietnam. We’ll explore the importance of sustainability in modern construction, the regulatory environment for tall buildings, and the prospect of affordable tall buildings in the future. We’re also proud to be showcasing some of the finest work of Cambodia’s architectural students, who will display their designs at the forum as part of the Tall Building Design Competition.”
