Published onDecember 27, 2019

Ambassador Patrick Murphy has expressed willingness to push private investors in the United States to work with the Kingdom’s oil and gas sector, so long as Cambodia is keen to coordinate with them. Mr. Murphy after a meeting with Energy and Mines Minister Suy Sem Wednesday tweeted the US is willing to push investors to invest on the Kingdom’s need for energy. “The US private sector is ready to support the Kingdom’s potential to produce oil and gas, integrate renewable energy and consider the environmental impacts of mining,” he said. The Kingdom has recently been developing its energy sector to support economic growth. Emily Zeeberg, spokeswoman for the US embassy in Phnom Penh, yesterday said … the US government is helping attract greater private sector participation in Cambodia’s energy sector through the Asia EDGE initiative, a programme which seeks to strengthen energy security, increase energy diversification and trade, and expand energy access across the region.
