Thailand’s Central Group set to build mall in Cambodia

Thai ambassador to Cambodia Nuttavudh Photisaro says Central representatives have already studied the proposed site, not yet revealed publicly.

“By investing in a shopping mall, they hope the trade volume between the two countries will increase,” says Nuttavudh.

CBRE Cambodia associate director Ann Sothida says shopping malls still have a chance to grow in Cambodia because the market has increased purchasing power and has only a limited number of shopping malls of international standard.

Trade between Thailand and Cambodia eased by 6 per cent last year to US$5.6 billion. Cambodian exports to Thailand amounted to $936 million, while the country’s imports from Thailand amounted to $4.7 billion.

Phnom Penh’s shopping centres comprise Aeon Mall, which is building a second outlet in the city, City Mall, Parkson and Soriya Mall.
