 LEAD STORY   Going Green

From organic shops sprouting across the capital to gas-powered green tuk tuks to real estate developments and to the government saying green is good for business. Cambodia is going green.

Dozens of companies are starting up offering everything from body lotions, green jousing to palm balsamic vinegar to pepper tea. Organic restaurants are big business, and not just with foreigners - although statistics are impossible to come by.

It is new and it is old. Khmer farmers and households have long practiced what is now trendily called permaculture - edible gardens, or sustainable agriculture.

Bosch Gearing Up for the Local Market

Bosch, a leading global supplier of technology and services, registered a healthy sales growth in Cambodia for fiscal 2015. It was the company's fifth consecutive year to achieve double-digit sales growth since establishing its presence in Cambodia in 2010 and its sales revenue grew by 22 percent in 2015. Its estimated growth is the same for 2016, led largely by the construction and automotive sectors in the country. Khmer Times Sok Chan sat down to chat with Andre De Jong, Bosch's managing director for Cambodia Laos and Myanmar, and they talked about how Bosch works in Cambodia, the growth and demand for spare parts in the automotive industry and the technology, automotive and construction sectors.

1.Could you tell us about Bosch in Cambodia?

Mr. De Jong: Bosch is a giant German technology company started in 1886 and which has offices in 150 countries. Bosch has had a presence in Cambodia since 2010. If we did not have a presence here we may not understand market needs, the culture ...

Lean, Green Tuk Tuk Machine

While they may seem more at home in the heaving streets of Mumbai or Jakarta, three-wheel tuk tuks are making steady inroads in Cambodia thanks to one Indian company.

Touting its safety and fuel efficiency as selling points to both private owners and taxi companies wanting to adopt the three-wheelers, Indian based company Vipar Auto Cambodia hopes their new model is seen as a more comfortable, greener look to the classic mode of public transportation in busy Cambodian cities.

Their appearance varies from similar to their Indian and Indonesian cousins to totally different. Vipar Auto Cambodia manager Di Sokkheoun is quick to point out that their company, an offshoot of Indian giant Bajaj Vipar Auto, the world's third-largest manufacturer of motorbikes, has made many modifications to the base model to make it right at home in Cambodia.

"We have made a large number of modifications for Cambodia. It is not an Indian tuk tuk. In India, they use Compressed Natural Gas. In Cambodia, CNG is not available ...

Malaysia, Cambodia Edge Closer on Trade

In an effort to further enhance trade and investment and the exchange of information in the private sector, the Cambodia Chamber of Commerce and the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE) have signed a memorandum of understanding. Dzulkifli Mahmud, the chief executive officer of MATRADE, talked to Sok Chan, of the Cambodian Business Review's sister publication the Khmer Times, about the MoU and how the two sides can promote investment from Malaysia. Malaysia's trade with Cambodia in 2015 was just $385.8 million. Malaysia recorded $234.5 million in exports and $151.3 million in imports. On the investment side, Malaysia is the fifth biggest investor in Cambodia, with over 150 Malaysian companies - including major banks - operating in the country.

1.What does the MoU mean?

Dzulkifli: The MoU is to enhance the bilateral trade, economy and investment between Malaysia and Cambodia. We [MATRADE] are working closely with the Cambodia Chamber of Commerce and industry to get more businessmen from Malaysia to come to Cambodia ...
