The Ministry of Public Works and Transport (MPWT) and the Great Wall Industry Corporation of China (CGWIC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the promotion of BeiDou satellite system and remote sensing technology in Cambodia.
This development will make Cambodia a regional data center and further impact Cambodia.
A press release issued by the Ministry of Public Works and Transport on November 27, 2020 states that the two sides plan to launch cooperation on two industrial programs: the National Vehicle Information Center (NCVSP) and VMS monitoring system, the first stage of business operations in Cambodia.
