It is not surprising, then, that Cambodia is becoming a magnet for ASEAN companies preparing international expansion plans and looking for alternative production bases with low-cost labour. Cambodia offers ample opportunities for export of Malaysian products and services. Malaysians should move in more aggressively in this market to tap its enormous potentials.
Due to this huge potential in the various sectors, the National Chamber of Commerce and Industry is organising a General Trade Mission to Vientiane from 24 to 27 November 2013. This mission is managed by the Malaysian Export Academy.
