Phnom Penh, Cambodia, August 16, 2017– DKSH Business Unit Consumer Goods, a leading partner for fast moving consumer goods companies seeking to grow their business in Asia, has strengthened its presence in Cambodia by expanding its infrastructure through the opening of a 1,000 square meter (10,760 square foot) distribution center in Siem Reap.
