  • (1888PressRelease) September 12, 2012 - PHNOM PENH - The Kearny Alliance Export Assistance Program Cambodia moved into its new office in the center of Phnom Penh at the French-Cambodian Chamber of Commerce business center, #33 Sothearos Boulevard - just north of the National Museum.

    The new office provides a convenient location for buyers to discuss their sourcing needs. This is vital for the Export Assistance Program Cambodia to help boost exports to create jobs for hardworking but needy producers.

    "Within this new office, buyers can visit us easily to meet and discuss their demands of handcrafted products from Cambodia and we can work more closely to our suppliers in town," said Sokneang Chhour, export manager of the Export Assistance Program Cambodia.

    "We are delighted by the warm reception we've received from the Chamber secretariat," Chhour said. "We expect to tap into the Franco-Cambodian community to help us create more jobs for the poor."

    The French-Cambodian Chamber of Commerce business center provides local and foreign companies and organizations, both profit and non-profit, a place to do business in Cambodia on a short or long-term basis in the heart in Phnom Penh. It offers private offices, conference room, receptionist and related service.
