China delegation in town

A business delegation composed up of 87 businesspeople from China’s Guangxi province and 80 members of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce held a meeting with approximately 100 Cambodian businesspeople in Phnom Penh yesterday to discuss future investment opportunities and debate the China-Asean Free Trade Area (CAFTA), an official at the Cambodia Chamber of Commerce (CCC) said on Tuesday. CCC International Relation Manager Keo Nimet said that most of the larger companies represented specialise in vehicles and machinery. The Chinese group was led by China Council for Promotion of International Trade Vice President Uyu Ruheng, and Cambodia’s group was led by CCC Director General Nguon Meng Tech. He said that the delegation will spend half a day more in Phnom Penh today before visiting Siem Reap province, but that there are no plans to meet with government officials. “They are just coming to seek out our local partners and see the potential for investment in our country,” he said.
