Message from the Chairman

Welcome to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Cambodia’s Official Website.

CanCham Cambodia is continuously growing with your support and we are excited to take action this year starting with the Chamber Relaunch. We look forward to raising the profile of Canada and Canadian businesses in Cambodia in 2018, and are eager to get in touch with newly settled residents and firms to provide a space for networking amongst fellow Canadian and Multi-nationals doing business in Cambodia.

With the departure of Ambassador Philip Calvert, we welcomed Donica Pottie in 2016 Canada's current Ambassador to Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. Having worked closely with Her Excellency in the previous years and keeping a close relationship with the Charge d’Affaires and Trade Commissioner at the Canadian Consulate in Cambodia, we look forward to continued involvement in CanCham from government officials in 2018.

Having also celebrated Canada's 150th Anniversary in 2016, and toasting to Canada Day again in 2017, with a great turnout of members and guests- we are enthusiastic for July 1st 2018 to roll around again. The Canadian spirit is definitely present even 11, 834km away from “home.”

CanCham Cambodia is also focused on increasing visibility of Canada and Canadian enterprises, not only in Cambodia, but in the greater region of South-East Asia as a whole. To get in touch with other Canadian Chambers of Commerce in the region, the Directory list of contacts can be found here.  

We would like to thank our sustaining Core Sponsors of 2018; ABA Bank, Dara Hotels, CIS, and Manulife Cambodia. The engagement from Core Sponsors has been the backbone for the organization to flourish, develop and put strategies into action.

We also welcome new Corporate Members in 2018, most recently the International School of Phnom Penh and AsiaWis Car Rental have registered with the association. We look forward to growing and expanding as the year unravels.   

As a membership-based organization, we are constantly looking for new members, both individual and corporate representatives, to join the Chamber. With already a steady growth rate in membership this year, we plan to serve you better and enhance the presence and impact of CanCham for the business community in Cambodia. Membership referrals are welcome for our team to follow-up on. If you have any feedback on any aspect of the organization, feel free to contact us as info@canchamkh.com. 

We look forward to establishing and building upon a strong Canadian business community in Cambodia, and thereby enhancing the bilateral relationship between Cambodia and Canada for the years to come.
