Wing and City Express Japan partner to make fund transfers to Cambodia easy

The Wing-City Express Japan partnership allows Cambodian workers in Japan to send funds home instantly anywhere in the Kingdom to help support their families.

Wing (Cambodia) Limited Specialised Bank and City Express Money Transfer Japan Co Ltd – one of Japan’s leading remittance companies – have formed a partnership to provide improved financial services to all Cambodians living in Japan.

Through Wing, this growing population can now send hard-earned money home instantly to help support their families – and in all parts of Cambodia.

“During the ongoing Covid pandemic, it’s critically important that we develop our cross-border transfer capacities to support the needs of our community.

“And Cambodian workers in Japan can now send their money home instantly, even to a remote village,” said Manu Rajan, CEO of Wing.

There are currently more than 10,000 Cambodians working in Japan, and through this partnership they can visit any ATM or branch of City Express Japan to send money home through Wing.

They will receive an eight-digit code for their families to use to cash out in Cambodia, using any of the more than 9,000 Wing Cash Xpress agents in the Kingdom.

“We believe this partnership will further unlock our financial capabilities, providing better financial assistance to all Cambodians.

“The strong networks of both companies will deliver instant and secure transfers, which is increasingly relevant to the Cambodian population in Japan,” said Shrestha Mahesh Kumar, president and CEO of City Express Japan.

City Express Japan is committed to providing fast, reliable and secure remittance solutions to customers through its global network of agents.

Likewise, Wing, the Kingdom’s leading mobile financial services provider, has the goal of providing every Cambodian with access to mobile financial services through its nationwide network of Wing Cash Xpress agents.
