“PTC will bring more high-tech and modernised computers and IT solutions into the country,” she said.

“This is not only to serve our business but also to enhance development of ICT industry for the country.”

David Ooi, Regional Director of NEC Asia Pacific Pte, said that it viewed the company as a sector leader in Cambodia.
