Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade) is organising an Export Acceleration Mission (EAM) to Cambodia tomorrow.
The EAM involves 35 business representatives from 20 Malaysian companies
One of the key highlights of the EAM is the Malaysia – Cambodia Business Seminar which will be participated by the Minister of International Trade and Industry, Mustapa Mohamed and his counterpart in Cambodia, Pan Sorasak, Minister of Commerce Cambodia.
The Malaysian companies participating in the mission are from diverse industrial and services sectors such as food and beverages, construction, financial services, chemical and electrical and electronic products, and halal related products.
The EAM is part of the government’s efforts to enhance trade and investment ties with ASEAN Member States.
The seminar will be an important avenue for businesses from both countries to exchange views on the current business climate and identify key areas to strengthen cooperation between the two nations.
It will be followed by a business matching session arranged by Matrade for Malaysian and Cambodian businesses.
During the visit, Minister Mustapa will also be having bilateral meetings with several Cambodian cabinet members.
“Malaysia and Cambodia have already had close relationship. We need to continue to build upon this strong foundation and maintain the momentum.
“Our current economic partnership must be expanded further to cover new key areas such as the Halal industry, utilities, infrastructure and road development, renewable energy, as well as high-value services”, said Mustapa.
Matrade will continue to organise similar missions including various marketing missions to ASEAN member states to increase Malaysia’s exports of goods and services.
