National University of Posts, Telecoms and ICT (Niptict) on Monday inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Hong Kong-based firm Smart City Consortium (SCC) to enhance capacity building in the information and communication technology sector.

Niptict’s president Seng Sopheap and SCC’s chairman Jones Chan signed the MoU which is in support of an e-government initiative.

Through the partnership, Smart City Consortium (SCC) will share its experience and knowledge in the digital sector with its Cambodian partner while Niptict will share relevant documents and draft policies on the Cambodian digital sector.

Chan said on Monday that the partners will help each other to strengthen research and development to support a government initiative to launch e-government and strengthen ICT security.

He said the agreement also seeks to enhance business activities through digital means.

“In the future, we hope there will be Hong Kong and Cambodia companies that can join hands to launch investment projects that benefit Cambodians,” he said.
