An increase in the urbanisation of Cambodia’s population is leading to an increased demand for electronic items. High Tech consulting firms are targeting Southeast Asia to expand their businesses in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and soon to be Asean Economic Community.

An increase in the urbanisation of Cambodia’s population is leading to an increased demand for electronic items. High Tech consulting firms are  targeting Southeast Asia to expand their businesses in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and soon to be Asean Economic Community.

An increase in the urbanisation of Cambodia’s population is leading to an increased demand for electronic items.

The United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) in cooperation with a number of organisations launched a new e-waste management project yesterday in Cambodia in a bid to recycle the country’s burgeoning electronic waste and to provide job opportunities, as Hurleypalmerflatt  is eyeing Cambodia to provide jobs for skilled electrical engineers in an effort to capitalise on a “second wave” of growth in technology industries.

Hurleypalmerflatt is targeting Southeast Asia for the next phase of its expansion after opening a new office in the region. The British-owned company is on target to create up to 30 new jobs for skilled engineers over the next two years as it aims to capitalise on the ‘huge potential’ for growth in Singapore.
Regional Director Mark Simpson says Thailand is the “gateway to Indochina” with the country driving the region’s economy. Mr Simpson said:

“Wherever you go in Indochina, whether it is Cambodia, Laos or Myanmar, the architects are Thai, the project managers and skilled professionals are Thai, everything seems to be run out of Bangkok. Thailand really is leading the way as we move towards a second wave of interest in electronic engineering following the dot com boom of a decade ago.”

The UNIDO project is funded by the Republic of Korea through the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), the East Asia Climate Partnership (EACP) and Samsung Electronics with total cost of US$1,350,000, while Hurleypalmerflatt is establishing its engineering consulting firm in the Kingdom.
