Cambodia Agrees to Chair LDC and New Graduate Consultation in December

Cambodia has agreed to chair a consultation meeting for least developed countries (LDCs) and recent LDC graduates of UNESCAP in December this year.

Minister of Commerce H.E. Pan Sorasak accepted the request made by Ms. Mia Mikic, Director of the Trade, Investment, and Innovation Division of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for the Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) in their meeting at the ministry yesterday.

According to the UNESCAP delegate, the purpose of the gathering is to formalise a suitability of those countries for generalised preference system and market accesses.

The planned consultation meeting will touch on e-commerce and digital economy, and trade facilitation.

Ms. Mia Mikic also spoke highly of commerce ministry's effort in preparation of the draft laws on e-commerce, consumer protection, food safety, and competition, as well as the regional comprehensive economic partnership (RCEP) agreement to be ready later this year.

H.E. Pan Sorasak thanked the UNESCAP delegation for the appreciation and looked forward to further cooperation with the UN agency.
