A senior foreign ministry official welcomed a second study visit for Thailand-based diplomats and businessmen, saying it builds the bond between Cambodia and the rest of the world.

Nhim Khemara — secretary of state and head of the Economic Diplomacy Coordination Group (EDCG) at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation — made the remarks during a briefing on “Economic diplomacy, investment, trade and tourism in Cambodia.” on September 2nd in Siem Reap province.

Among others, Khemara spoke to about 100 participants from 19 diplomatic missions in Bangkok and a Thai delegation who are on their second study visit to Siem Reap and Banteay Meanchey provinces from September 1-4.

One such visit was initiated by the Cambodian Embassy in Bangkok in cooperation with the EDCG. The enactment of a new investment law, Economic Diplomacy Strategy 2021-2023 and other related economic and tourism development strategies for post-pandemic recovery aims to showcase Cambodia’s huge potential as a business destination, the ministry said.

It is also organized to promote Cambodia’s vision of economic diplomacy and provide diplomats with insights into specific investment opportunities of interest to their respective countries.

“This second study visit offers Cambodia an enlightening experience… It would further strengthen the connection between Cambodia and the rest of the world.”

During a welcome dinner later that day, Khemara also took the opportunity to promote Cambodia’s cuisine, traditional performances and a plethora of wonderful Khmer products, according to the ministry.
