The workshop also encouraged businesses to take their products to the next level and open up to global markets. A significant part of building a successful e-commerce business is to find a reliable partner who can offer global network access and innovative local solutions.
“Based on Cambodia’s Trade report in 2018 . We can see that the number of imports are more than exports in Cambodia. Hence, that is indicated that we (Cambodia) are bringing in the raw materials and exporting less out to the global market. Cambodia has high potential for local products to bring to international markets. Moreover, we want to help the sellers to reach their goals by being the fastest and most reliable logistics partner.” – Said Mr. Prayag Chitrakar, Country Manager of DHL Express Cambodia.
He also added that “This is the first-ever e-commerce to be launched by DHL Express Cambodia, and we are hoping to continue to organize more in the upcoming months to continue building awareness of local businesses and foster value-adding discussion”.
