BUSINESS leaders are gearing up for what could be the country's biggest economic forum yet - the Business Roundtable with the Government of Cambodia Monday in Siem Reap.
The event is to bring together government officials, including Prime Minister Hun Sen, and business leaders to address issues from energy to the economic crisis. Sponsors predict it could bring a new league of investors to the Kingdom.
"It's exactly the type of conference Cambodia should be having. It is going to reach a new investor base," said Bretton Sciaroni, a partner at Sciaroni and Associates, one of the event's sponsors.
A statement by the organisers said the conference will cover a range of pressing issues.
"With a liberal economy, low wages, some of the world's greatest tourist sites, and the recent discovery of potentially large oil and gas deposits ... Cambodia's prospects ... appear bright," it said.
