Hosted by the National Institute of Telecommunications, Information and Communication Technology (NIPTICT), Digital Cambodia brought together leaders from the private and public sectors to share opportunities and ideas in Cambodia’s rapidly developing digital economy.

Asri Hassan Sabri, Group Chief Corporate Officer of Axiata Group, expressed his vision for ASEAN and Cambodia.

“We see Cambodia and other ASEAN countries to skip generations of technologies and develop the phases to move directly to the forefront of the global revolution… We also see the equivalents of global companies like Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Alibaba, Tencent, potentially emerge from ASEAN countries, and there is no reason why such a global winner will not start in Cambodia,” he said.

Geeks in Cambodia looks forward to seeing just what developments will come from the convention for the Kingdom’s digital sector, and we will of course write about them for you!
