Cambodia-Australia International Investor Roundtable Convened

Cambodia and Australia have organised an international investor roundtable to boost bilateral trade and investment.

The session on May 5 was co-chaired by H.E. Nut-Un Voanra, Deputy Secretary General of the Cambodian Investment Board at the Council for the Development of Cambodia and H.E. Andreas Zurbrugg, Deputy Ambassador of Australia to Cambodia.

According to a news release issued by the Australian Embassy in Cambodia, the roundtable examined ways to support Cambodia’s capacity to attract productive international investment.

It also provided an opportunity for Cambodian officials to hear directly from current Australian investors and facilitation experts about their experience investing in Cambodia.

Discussions at the roundtable will inform the production of a handbook on best practice for investment facilitation for use by international investors looking to invest in Cambodia, which will also draw on international evidence and practice.

The roundtable was sponsored by the Mekong Foreign Investment and Critical Infrastructure Initiative, an initiative run by the Australian Department of Home Affairs focused on engaging Mekong countries on foreign direct investment and critical infrastructure.
