Cambodia To Establish Offices of the Chamber of Commerce Abroad

Cambodia's Ministry of Commerce has been working on the amendment of a sub-decree to establish offices of the Chamber of Commerce abroad in order to promote trade and investment.

According to the ministry's news release, a meeting on "Review and decision for the new draft sub-decree on the organisation and functioning of Cambodia Chamber of Commerce" was held here last Friday under the chairmanship of H.E. Pan Sorasak, Minister of Commerce.

The meeting, attended by 30 senior government officials and elected members of the chamber, aims to debate the proposed new sub-decree on the establishment of the chamber in order to pave the way for foreign companies as well as Cambodian living abroad to be elected as its members for the Kingdom's offices and/or its representatives for the overseas offices.

The new draft sub-decree will allow the Chamber of Commerce to open its representative offices in capitals and provinces, or in any regions of other countries, following the government's decision.

The new draft sub-decree will soon be sent to the Head of the Royal Government, Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, to sign and put into enforcement next year.
