CAMBODIA could become a “Silicon Valley” of the ASEAN region, according to the newly elected president of Cambodia’s Information and Communication Technology Business Association.

The organisation was launched at an event at NagaWorld yesterday, under the helm of Pily Wong, country representative for Microsoft Market Development Programme Cambodia. It will facilitate a policy dialogue between the government and the private sector, particularly at the government-private sector forums, as well as contribute in-house expertise to the development of the ICT industry.

The new organisation will also provide networking opportunities. The ICT-BA merges the ICT Cambodia Association and the ICT Business Club of Cambodia.
