Message from the German Embassy on warm bilateral ties with Cambodia

On the occasion of the 23rd anniversary of the German reunification I would like to extend my warmest greetings to all German nationals and all the friends of Germany who are living in the Kingdom of Cambodia.

Germany follows Cambodia’s development with great interest. German governmental and non-governmental organisations are actively supporting Cambodia’s efforts to meet its goals in a wide range of sectors which are of vital importance to its people.

Commercial relations are developing as well. Germany is one of Cambodia’s major trading partners, importing a number of goods produced in the Kingdom.

An ever growing number of German tourists are also contributing to Cambodia’s trade surplus in relation to Germany.

My countrymen are helping to de-mine areas north of Siem Reap and for many years German experts, alongside those of other nations, have been assisting with the preservation of Cambodia’s iconic national treasure, the temples of Angkor Wat.

I am confident that German-Cambodian relations will continue to flourish and expand. There are currently well over 400 Germans living and working in Cambodia, some of them even on a permanent basis, and I know that, thanks to the welcome they have received in this country, they are happy to be here.

With my colleagues in the German Embassy in Phnom Penh, I look forward to building on this strong foundation.

Joachim Baron von Marschall, Ambassador designate
