Ministry of Post and Telecommunications secretary of state So Visothy met with representatives of several Cambodian and Indian digital companies at an August 24 meeting in Phnom Penh.

Visothy expects that Cambodian and Indian technology firms will connect, exchange experiences, knowledge, increase partnership and cooperation with one another, and contribute to the digital transformation in Cambodia.

The meeting was organised by India’s Electronic & Computer Software Export Promotion Council (ESC) and the Indian embassy in Phnom Penh, in the presence of Indian ambassador Devyani Khobragade.

The forum was attended by the Cambodia Digital Tech Association (CDTA), which includes 60 Cambodian digital technology companies, along with 15 well-known Indian firms that specialise in tech as diverse as software, data analytics, cyber sSecurity, cloud computing, web and mobile applications, fintech, edutech, agritech and blockchain technology.

“Today, digital technology plays a vital role in our daily lives, improving communication, job performance, business and education,” said Visothy.

He commended India for developing excellent human resources in the Information and communications technology (ICT) sector, and for its well-known digital technology companies.

“One of our main strategic goals is to enhance public-private cooperation and partnerships to encourage the participation of the private sector and partners in efficiently managing the digital transformation, mobilising digital human resources, as well as embracing finance and technology in the development, operation and maintenance of digital systems,” he added.
