Electronics zone to open in City Mall

A new electronics depot with vendors representing mostly Chinese brands is expected to open in the capital’s City Mall by mid-December.

With capital investment of about $2 million, the E-Zone Phnom Penh Cyberport is a joint venture between the China-based Guangdong Computer Association (GCA) and Cambodian businessman Chea Sok Heng.

“We plan to be a major distributor, not only in Cambodia, but also other countries in ASEAN,” Heng said on Friday.

E-Zone will consist of about 200 vendors selling electronics and IT products, all clustered together in one location of the mall. The planned opening is set for December 12.

Chen Zhi Hua, president of GCA, said that manufacturers can utilize E-Zone as a platform to expand their market and to establish a sales presence.

“[The zone] is an effective approach for GCA’s members and for Chinese brands to enter Cambodia.”
