Share DHL, the world’s leading logistics company, today opened its new premises for its Global Forwarding arm in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Located in the Regency Square Business Complex close to the capital’s center, the new office will serve as a “DHL Fashion and Apparel Center of Excellence” to support the established textile and garments industry in Cambodia, and also bolster DHL’s services to customers in the oil and energy sector.
“The new office reflects our commitment to expand our reach in the region and to continually invest in Cambodia. We are very optimistic about the country’s growth potential – gross domestic product growth stands at 5.5 per cent in 2010, higher than the forecast of 4.9 per cent by the World Bank. We believe that 2011 will be an even better year for Cambodia now that economic recovery is well underway,” said Amadou Diallo, Chief Executive Officer, Africa and South Asia Pacific, DHL Global Forwarding.
