Indonesian investors met with top Cambodian officials early yesterday to discuss investment from Southeast Asia’s biggest economy.
Indonesian Ambassador to Cambodia Soehardjono Sastromihardjo discussed agriculture, tourism and telecom investments with Deputy Prime Minister Sok An, Council of Ministers spokesman Ek Tha said. “They are seeking investments in rice production because we have high potential in agriculture, especially in rice,” he said.
Ek Tha said Indonesian investors were interested in purchasing rice from Cambodia. Indonesia has also considered starting direct flights between the island of Bali to Siem Reap province and Phnom Penh, Ek Tha said. “We welcome any investment and exports of our milled rice and rice paddy to their country, as well as [investments in] direct flight and telecoms in our country,” he said.
