Dear Dear BritCham Supporter,
We are still not able to have in-person events here, in Cambodia, but we are looking forward to the restriction being lifted very soon.
A hugely successful Government vaccination scheme has seen 5 million vaccines being administered in just over 2 months, meaning that an estimated 28% of all adults in the Kingdom and nearly 50% in Phnom Penh have now had at least their first dose.
The lightning speed at which this rollout is happening is extremely encouraging as we look forward to businesses being re-opened and events being restarted (and who knows maybe travel too !)
In the meantime, we have exciting Virtual Conferences happening this month, as well as our Podcast series and webinars
In this month's newsletter:
- Upcoming Online Events - the UKBCC Annual Conference and Britain in South East Asia Conference
- Business Services News
- Doing Business in Cambodia Podcast
- Past BritCham Webinars
- CIMA Global Business Challenge (SEA) 2021

Wishing you all the best,
The Britcham team

FastTrack Your Export Growth In South East Asia.

BiSEA is the grouping of British Chambers and Business Groups in Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

This year the BCC’s Global Annual Conference will be held virtually over two days on 16 and 17 June and is one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the British business calendar.
Both days will feature an impressive roster of senior political figures, Leader to Leader ‘In Conversation’ sessions, panel sessions, interactive workshops and essential keynote speeches, exploring how we can restore confidence and build a more resilient sustainable future that supports businesses to recover, grow, invest and thrive.
The sessions will include:
· senior political leaders
· thought-provoking debates on panels between business leaders from large and small companies
· inspiring interviews with some of our incredible young entrepreneurs that are putting innovation and sustainability at the heart of their business models, and expanding their global footprint with exciting, new products and services
In the days leading up to it, and during the event, there will also be the opportunity to network with other delegates through the BCC’s new virtual platform, allowing you to browse the delegate list, form connections, start conversations and make contacts.
Although Covid-19 is continuously affecting the economic well-being of the country and bilateral trade value between the United Kingdom and Cambodia has slightly decreased by 17% in 2020, there is still an optimistic view that the increase of trade between the two countries will soon pickup again.
This is due to the fact that the United Kingdom is offering Cambodia duty-free access and nil rates of import duty on all goods except arms and ammunition through the UK Generalised Scheme of Preferences (GSP).
This preferential treatment will bring confidence for Cambodian exporters to increase trade into UK, whilst UK’s high-quality products and technologies demand in Cambodia is constantly expanding.
BritCham Cambodia is the official delivery partner of the UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT) to provide trade services in Cambodia. We are a member of the British Chambers of Commerce and UK-ASEAN Business Council in the UK and Britain in Southeast Asia (BiSEA) in the region and ready to assist you in getting what you need from the UK.
We provide free of charge business consultation and trade support for businesses based in Cambodia. If you are keen to inquire about anything related to sourcing products and services from the UK, please do not hesitate to contact
