More than 300 small and medium enterprises (SMEs) have applied to display their products on Cambodia Trade, an online marketplace initiated by the Ministry of Commerce.
The ministry received 325 applications as of November 15.
73 of the applications have passed all checks and are eligible to display products on the marketplace. The rest are still undergoing final checks, according to ministry spokesman Pen Sovicheat.
Most of the applicants are in the agro-industry, handicraft, food and beverage processing and textile industries, he said.
A ministry working group is addressing minor technical problems, mainly related to transportation issues, Sovicheat said.
“Due to technical problems Cambodia Trade has been delayed a bit,” he said, adding that the ministry wanted to ensure all items ordered by customers will be transported accurately and safely.
“We will try to accelerate and launch the Cambodia Trade soon,” he said.
The ministry planned to launch the e-marketplace in October, after reaching deals with local delivery firms and payment system companies.
