Corroborating on the same, Sun Senghout, Under Secretary of State, Ministry of Industry and Handicraft, said during the opening day speech“The main purpose of organising the event is to encourage industrial development and attract foreign investors to Cambodia. In particular, we seek to create opportunities for manufacturers to improve their machinery through new business partnerships.”
John Cha, Executive Committee Member, Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia, said “The exhibition comes at a critical juncture for the industry. We are facing several challenges like rising labour costs, lack of productivity and digitalisation and automation as a result of Industry 4.0.”

CIMIF is the most comprehensive exhibition in Cambodia, which covers packaging, printing, accessories, machine tools among others, whereas CTG, on the other hand, is the only trade fair in the country that is dedicated to the textile and garment industry, featuring textile machinery and accessories, apparel machinery and accessories, fibres, filaments, yarns and fabrics.
