“Ultimately we want to offer a much wider array of services [with WING],” he said yesterday, adding further steps would be subject to approval from the National Bank of Cambodia.

AMK claims a loan portfolio topping US$30 million, while ANZ Bank-owned WING was the first company to offer mobile phone banking in Cambodia.
