Chamber gives talk on local investing

The Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Cambodia (CCCC) and investment and tax advisory firm DFDL on Wednesday held a breakfast seminar in the capital to discuss tax and investment law in the Kingdom.

A press release on the event said it aimed to provide insights on the latest labour laws to Chinese investors in Cambodia.

“The market in Cambodia for Chinese investment is booming, but at the same time it can be confusing and lack clarity for investors,” the press release reads.

DFDL and CCCC have identified the need to further educate investors and provide useful and practical advice on various types of investment.

They are looking at legal and tax perspectives to help those who have already invested in Cambodia or wish to in the future.

DFDL tax partner Clint O’Connell said the event provided Chinese investors with important information on Cambodia’s latest investments.

“We are keen to help investors understand the current regulations to make sure they get the best return on their investment and manage hurdles along the way,” he said.

Chinese investment has come to Cambodia in many forms, the press release says – from 2011 to 2015, Chinese firms provided almost $5 billion worth of loans and investment to the country.
