In Brief: GE opens new office

GENERAL Electric formally launched its international office in Cambodia on Tuesday, according to a company statement. Cambodia is the seventh country in ASEAN that GE has invested in, said Stuart Dean, GE president for ASEAN. "We see a lot of opportunities here in the areas of healthcare, energy, oil and gas, transportation and water," he said. GE has had a presence in Cambodia since mid-2007, but it said the new office will have an official country representative. "Now we have set up an office in Phnom Penh and recruited the country representative for GE in Cambodia." The US-based GE is a diversified infrastructure, finance and media company that makes a range of products including aircraft engines, electrical generators and medical equipment. The company operates in 130 countries and employs more than 300,000 people. Last year, GE revenues were US$183 billion.
