ICT sector progress in countryside still behind

While Cambodia’s Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector has seen progress, a huge gap between ICT development in urban and rural areas still exists, industry experts said in Phnom Penh yesterday.

Speaking to reporters at the National ICT Education and Technology conference, Chhunhour Long, territory business manager of Cambodia for CISCO, the world’s leading network equipment maker, said that “in general, we see a lot of developments in the capital and in other cities in the provinces, but it is still limited in rural areas”.

In recent years, Cambodia’s strong demand has needed a growing number of experts from abroad to enhance development in the ICT sector.

“I am responsible for this project [ICT], I see that a lot of projects needs outside experts to help,” he said, adding: “The demand is higher than resources we have in the country.”
