More than 70 representatives from Indonesian and Cambodian companies attended a business forum in Phnom Penh to explore business opportunities and seek new partnerships in the Kingdom. This was the second such forum hosted by the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia. The forum was attended by representatives from several companies from Jepara Regency, in the northeast of the Indonesian province of Central Java. These companies operate in tourism, batik, furniture, beauty, fashion, and building materials, among other sectors.
Sudirman Haseng, Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia, said the goal of the event was to create a platform for Indonesian and Cambodian entrepreneurs to meet, create more business opportunities, and foster trade cooperation between the two countries. He pointed out that two-way trade between the countries reached $558 million in 2018. From January to July this year, it had already reached $352 million, an 11 percent increase compared with the same period last year.
“I hope this positive trend will continue until the end of the year. The Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Phnom Penh promotes activities that bring benefits to both countries.
