Japanese investors talk investment visions with interior minister

A delegation of Japanese investors active in Cambodia on February 9 met with Minister of Interior Sar Kheng to discuss visions and plans connected to investment initiatives and strategies, according to the ministry.

Led by Japan-Cambodia Association (JCA) president and former Japanese ambassador to the Kingdom, Fumiaki Takahashi, the investors also made a variety of requests to Sar Kheng, the ministry said in a statement later that day, without elaborating.

The investors mentioned strengthening and developing cooperative relations, as well as efforts to convince Japanese small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME) to invest in Cambodia.

In turn, Sar Kheng voiced support for the delegation’s investment-related pursuits concentrated on Cambodia, the development of which he stressed is aided by contributions from the Japanese private sector and other partners in the island nation, the statement noted.

The minister expressed hope that Takahashi would continue to drive investment in tourism and other priority areas, it added.
