PHNOM PENH: The Government-Private Sector Forum, scheduled to take place in November this year, will give the floor to the private sector to ask for solutions from the government after issues have not been solved at the level of the Cambodia Chamber of Commerce, said Oknha Lim Heng, Vice President of the Cambodia Chamber of Commerce.
“The forum will be important for the private sector from each group to raise and suggest to the government, and the Prime Minister will be able to give them proper solutions,” Oknha said.
The forum was established on the initiative of the Royal Government of Cambodia under the leadership of Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen in 1999.
It is a mechanism for public-private sector consultation on investment climate issues ranging from long-range policy to day-to-day operations.
This forum has also given the Royal Government a channel for getting the private sector's feedback on draft policies, laws, and regulations.
Yesterday, Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Moha Borvor Thipadei Hun Manet said that the forum will be used as a platform to hear opinions and suggestions from the private sector for the government to place a series of measures to solve the problems with an aim to enhance better doing business and investment in the country.
The Prime Minister also said that the forum will address and tackle challenges in businesses and investment and set up strategic drives to boost the economy.
