PHNOM PENH: Hong Kong will be a major partner for Cambodia in tapping into its enormous business and investment potential, as it is prepared to collaborate closely with Cambodia to seize unprecedented business opportunities. According to the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development in Hong Kong.
According to a source close to Asean Property, Hong Kong’s Secretary of Commerce and Economic Development Algernon Yau met with Cambodian businesses last weekend to promote Hong Kong’s business opportunities after attending the event.
