Japan provides US$76 million to promote digital sector, social and economic development in Cambodia

Japan will provide ¥750 million (US$7 million) to develop the digital sector and ¥7.1 billion (US$69 million) to advance social and economic development in Cambodia.

While Cambodia has a flourishing textile and clothing industry, the Cambodian government aims to advance high-value industries, especially using digital technology. Japan will provide ¥500 million (US$5 million) for a Computerized Numerical Control machine and ¥250 million (US$2 million) for a Global Navigation Satellite System in Cambodia, targeting the digital sector.

Although the population of Seim Reap, Cambodia is growing, the water supply rate is only 25%, the lowest level of any major city in Cambodia. Japan has loaned ¥6.3 billion (US$ 61 million) to expand the water supply in Seim Reap. In addition, Japan will provide ¥250 million (US$2 million) for concrete compressors and material testing equipment, ¥400 million (¥3 million) for training equipment for factory production lines, and ¥200 million (US$1 million) for equipment to detect landmines.
