PM to open investment conference

Prime Minister Hun Sen will open Cambodia’s International Investment Conference in Phnom Penh later this year, the International Business Chamber of Cambodia (IBC) said in a statement yesterday.

To be held over two days, the event will take place at the Intercontinental Hotel in Phnom Penh, beginning October 6.

Themed “Cambodia – a new era of opportunity”, the conference seeks to attract international companies looking to invest in Cambodia.

“The aim of this conference is to encourage those with an eye to doing business in Cambodia and also to inform those who may not know about Cambodia and the attractiveness of the country’s business environment,” said IBC chairman Brett Sciaroni, in a statement .

Run every two years, the 2014 conference will also focus on growth and change concerned with ASEAN integration and will include participation from Cambodia’s industry leaders and government officials according to the IBC.
