The Israeli representative gave an interview to the Deum Ampil (Tamarind tree) newspaper in which he indicated that his country is interested to invest in Cambodia in the agricultural sector and in communication.
“In May, we will organize an international exposition on agriculture in Tel Aviv. We invited the Cambodian minister of Agriculture to participate in it, as well as all his counterparts from all over the world,” Tzahi Selzer indicated. He also added that between 15 and 16 March, a meeting between Israeli and Cambodian businessmen and technicians would be organized in Phnom Penh. In fact, he indicated that Israel wishes to establish a commercial cooperation between the two countries.
“Some Israel investors are already in Cambodia. Most of them are in Sihanoukville. They work on bio-diesel and in the real estate sector. Other investors from Israel who have established in neighboring countries, would like to establish themselves here,” he said while recalling that the amount of Israeli investments in Cambodia is still very low.
