More Investments on Agriculture and Processing Industry Encouraged

Cambodia has urged Japan to invest more in Cambodia, especially in agriculture, processing industry, textiles and manufacturing, tourism, technology, and education.

The call was made by H.E. Mrs. Cham Nimul, Cambodian Minister of Commerce, during a meeting with H.E. Saito Ken, Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan, in Tokyo, Japan, on Dec. 18.

H.E. Mrs. Cham Nimul emphasised the significance of the Japanese private sector’s participation in Cambodia’s economic development, particularly in job creation, trade, and industrial diversification in the country.

H.E. Mrs. Cham Nimul and H.E. Saito Ken noticed the two-way trade flow so far and exchanged views to further promote businesses and bilateral trade.

Both sides also pledged to foster the implementation of the ASEAN-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) in order to broaden relations and economic collaboration between the two countries.
