Investors and SMEs from 19 provinces in Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam (CMTV) situated along the Southern Economic Corridor (SEC) will participate in the ‘Investor Forum and Business Matching 2017’, which will be held on November 13 in the Thai capital.

The forum seeks to create business opportunities for participating companies, such as attracting investors that can help them expand their operations.

Attendees can expect to gain significant insight into a variety of topics, including approaching investment opportunities, widening business linkages and trade development for integration into regional and global value chains.   

The event will feature an interactive panel on the investment opportunities available in the Asean region.

Madhurjya Kumar Dutta, the director of the Trade and Investment Facilitation Department of the Mekong Institute, told Khmer Times via email that six SME clusters from seven different provinces in Cambodia will take part in the event.

Cambodian participants belong to a plethora on industries, including garments, food production, pottery and ceramics and agriculture.

“The forum will provide opportunities to access regional and global markets through meeting prospective buyers from Asean countries, Japan, Hong Kong, China, Canada, Poland, India and other countries,” Mr Dutta said.

Bun Narin, a producer of fleur de sel in Kampot who will be attending the forum, told Khmer Times he hopes orders will increase as a result of participation in the event.

“I hope that other participants will be purchasing our products and we can partner up with other companies,” Mr Narin said.

Discussions on a variety of business topics will be followed by business matching sessions to connect the business clusters with investors.
