TOKYO, JAPAN – NTT Communications (NTT Com) announced today that its subsidiary NTT Communications (Thailand) Co., Ltd. has begun operating a branch office in Phnom Penh, Cambodia effective immediately. Headed by the concurrent president of NTT Communications (Thailand), Tsuyoshi Kawashima, the Phnom Penh Branch will provide multinational companies in Cambodia with ICT solutions from NTT Com.
NTT Com is the first Japanese telecommunications company to set up a branch in Cambodia, where telecommunication infrastructure is now being developed.
Multinational companies from Asia, Europe and the U.S., including 47 firms from Japan at present, are becoming increasingly active in Cambodia. The country, together with Thailand and Vietnam, is part of the Greater Mekong subregion, which is now linked by the Southern Economic Corridor, part of a series of new highways facilitating commerce throughout Indochina.
Multinationals believe the Cambodian economy has potential for growth, including as a base for manufacturing and target marketing. NTT Com expects to provide these companies with highly professional integrated ICT services based on its extensive experience in South East Asia.
The addition of the Phnom Penh Branch expands NTT Com’s network of subsidiaries and offices to 67 cities in 25 countries/regions. NTT Com also plans to set up NTT Communications (Thailand)’s branch office in Ayutthaya, Thailand in August.
