Cambodia discusses potential for e-commerce, cross-border trade

Phnom Penh – High-profile officials, experts and potential investors gathered here on Friday at the #ConnectCambodia forum to discuss the potential for e-commerce and cross-border trade.

Organized by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) here, the forum linked-up with the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in an effort to showcase how regional integration, technologies and innovations have created new development opportunities to advance cross-border trade in Cambodia, the UNDP said in a press release.

“Through the Belt and Road Initiative, e-commerce and e-trade could support productive activities, decent job creation, entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation, and encourage the formalization and growth of small and medium enterprises,” said Pauline Tamesis, UNDP resident representative to Cambodia.
