Frederic Campagnac, chair of EU Chamber of Commerce / South China chapter Logistics working group, was invited to speak in a round table on E-commerce logistics. It was the occasion of a rich exchange with H. E. Mr. KAN Chanmeta, Secretary of State, Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications, the GM of Uber Cambodia and the GM of a local start-up of parcel delivery, confronting the already significant Chinese experience with the starting trends of Cambodia.
Campagnac said : Cambodian e-commerce will be cross-border at the first place, in order to find a significant market for the Cambodian production and also to offer enough product range for Cambodian consumer. With a high rate of smartphone equipment, e-wallet developing, start-up investing the local delivery market, the global environment is favourable for Cambodia e-commerce development. European companies may consider this new market … anyhow I will !
