Taing Vouch Lay, vice president of PTC, said during a signing ceremony in Phnom Penh on Friday that the agreement reflected the firm’s successful business operations, carried out for more than 14 years in Cambodia.

“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.

“This is a starting point for improvement of the sector as private companies contribute to ICT development in the country.”

Taing Vouch Lay said that her company intends to expand its reach nationwide in the future.
