Royal group signs MoU with government to boost digitalisation

The Royal Group on Monday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications to support the Kingdom’s digitalisation efforts, according to a press release.

The signing, officiated by Royal Group chairman Kith Meng and Minister of Posts and Telecommunications Tram Iv Tek, will see both sides collaborate in the wide-scale adoption of next generation technology via E-government applications, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, as well as an ICT innovation centre and cloud data centre.

Kith Meng said during Monday’s signing that the two parties will set up a digital innovation joint working group to boost the project’s aims.

“The Royal Group, along with the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications, will launch the latest generation [of technology] in Cambodia,” he said.

“We have a lot of projects which we have been putting in place and we [the Royal Group] believe that we could become the Kingdom’s leading representative in the sector.”

The MoU also outlined security measures that will be put in place, ranging from disaster discovery systems to government email security.

Kith Meng said Cambodia can be an example in the region for harnessing technological innovation to stimulate economic growth.
