Concerned Cambodian and Japanese Officials Meet to Hear Issues and Define Solutions

Concerned senior officials of Cambodia and Japan have met recently to discuss mechanisms to promote and protect Japanese investors to Cambodia.

Taking place here in Phnom Penh on Feb. 14, the meeting was presided over by H.E. Sok Chenda Sophea, Minister Attached to the Prime Minister and Secretary General of the Council for the Development of Cambodia (CDC).

The gathering, said the secretary general, served as an essential forum to highlight hurdles faced by Japanese investors and to define appropriate solutions for them.

Government record shows that there were about 130 Japanese investment projects � equivalent to about US$1.6 billion � in Cambodia in 2017.

It is expected that the number of investments from Japan will increase this year.
