PHNOM PENH: Prime Minister Hun Sen met with Mori Masahiko, President of the Japanese company DMG Mori, to discuss how they can work together to improve Cambodia’s standing in the digital revolution.
The bilateral meeting took place on May 23 at the Peace Palace, during which Masahiko hailed the achievements of the Cambodia-Japan Digital Production Center, which promotes the digitalization of industrial trade in Cambodia via human resource development and industrial cooperation of digital systems. The DMG Mori president agreed to continue training Cambodians in technology in addition to educating Cambodian tech students-a project which he asked the PM to support.
The PM voiced his support for the project and assured Masahiko that Cambodia is promoting the digital sector with two goals in mind: first, to attract investment in processing raw materials used in tech for export; and second, to produce more innovative technology within the country. To this end, the PM requested the assistance of DMG Mori and the Japanese government to move Cambodia’s digital sector forward.
