The Prime Minister of Cambodia is trying to drum up more business from Japanese firms.
Hun Sen told a gathering in Tokyo on Wednesday that Cambodia is making it easier for foreign companies to invest. He said his country is eager to benefit from Japanese expertise in food processing and other industries.
Hun Sen promised to make a change to the corporate tax system to meet a request by Japanese firms. He said that will happen as early as this year.
Since 2011, Cambodia’s economy has grown annually by about 7 percent. More than 270 Japanese companies do business there in the Southeast Asian country.
