On 25 September 2018, EuroCham’s chairman, Arnaud Darc, and ADW’s president, Tassilo Brinzer, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with GIZ represented by Guenther Riethmacher. GIZ is a German development agency that provides services in the field of international development cooperation. The MoU formalizes cooperation between the German Business Group Cambodia (ADW) and GIZ in establishing a business & cooperation desk within the German chapter of EuroCham.
The Business & Cooperation Desk will provide information, advice and guidance to support local, German and European businesses and institutions in engaging in development cooperation. All three partners have a long history of promoting sustainable development in Cambodia. The MoU will seek to take this to higher levels of collaboration and will provide additional impetus to German commitment in Cambodia.
