$13.M e-bike plant planned for SEZ in Svay Rieng
Thou Vireak | Publication date 24 June 2021 | 21:03 ICT
Leisger (Cambodia) Co Ltd plans to build a plant to manufacture electric bicycles, batteries and other components, in a special economic zone (SEZ) of the southeastern province of Svay Rieng.

The Council for the Development of Cambodia (CDC) on June 23 said it had approved a final registration certificate for Leisger Cambodia’s $13.9 million venture in “Sin Bavet Special Economic Zone”, and is expected to create 251 jobs.

Provincial deputy governor Ros Pharith said he welcomes all investment projects in the province, which he pointed out boasts notable trade potential as it borders Vietnam.

“We have not received this information yet, but we believe this investment will create more jobs for the people,” he said, ascribing this “achievement” as an “effort of the senior government leadership to attract foreign investors to Cambodia”.

“We will facilitate the provision of public services to them to serve the factory project,” Pharith said.

Hong Vanak, director of International Economics at the Royal Academy of Cambodia, previously noted that free trade agreements (FTA) with China and South Korea, as well as the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) agreement, will contribute to reeling in investment to the Kingdom.

“We will have more inflows of investors into Cambodia in the future,” he said.

The Kingdom exported $527.8 million worth of bicycles and spare parts last year, up by 27.78 per cent from 2019’s $412.49 million, and imported $8.38 million from Japan, China, Taiwan, Vietnam, the US and Thailand, down by 19.33 per cent year-on-year, according to Ministry of Commerce data.

While no figures were available for the number of bicycles exported in 2020, online trade publication Bike Europe reported that the Kingdom shipped out more than 1.42 million bicycles in 2017, up by nine per cent from 1.26 million in the previous year.

According to Bike Europe, Cambodia has become the leading supplier of bicycles to the EU since 2017, overtaking Taiwan, which held the position for more than two decades.

Cambodia is ASEAN’s largest exporter of bicycles to the EU – Denmark and Sweden are notable buyers
September 11, 2021 - by Gregers Møller

Cambodia has since 2017 become ASEAN’s leading supplier of bicycles to the EU, according to Bike Europe and over the past eight months, the country exported 1.86 million bicycles into the international market, Phnom Penh reports.

According to Ministry spokesman Seang Thay, 50 countries globally import bicycles from Cambodia and the Nordic countries of Denmark and Sweden are amongst countries highlighted as notable buyers. Other countries classified as notable buyers include the US, Germany, Belgium, the UK, Australia, Austria, the Netherlands, and the Czech Republic.

Before 2017, Taiwan held the position as the leading supplier of bicycles to the EU but the Cambodian bicycle export market has remained in positive territory in recent years, ascribing the current upswing to a combination of factors, Ministry spokesman Seang Thay said.

Cambodia exported last year $527.08 million worth of bicycles, marking a 27.78 percent year-on-year surge, emerging as ASEAN’s largest exporter and world number-five, according to the Ministry of Commerce.

So far this year, from January to August 2021, the export of bicycles from Cambodia has accounted for $416.85 million, as reported by the Ministry and the number represents a jump of $82.17 million or 24.55 percent from the $334.67 million recorded from the same period last year, the ministry noted.
