Fas­mec brings in web­site for SMEs

The Phnom Penh Post - - BUSINESS - Hor Kim­say

CAM­BO­DIAN en­trepreneurs who are mem­bers of the Fed­er­a­tion of As­so­ci­a­tion for Small and Medium En­ter­prises of Cam­bo­dia (Fas­mec), can soon dis­play and sell their prod­ucts on a new shop­ping web­site, thanks to a part­ner­ship with Lon­don-based Sram & Mram Re­sources Ltd.

Fas­mec Pres­i­dent Te Taing Por said on Thursday that his fed­er­a­tion signed a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing with the con­glom­er­ate on Wednesday to de­velop smex­as­ean.com, which will serve as a plat­form link­ing Cam­bo­dian prod­ucts to the re­gional mar­ket.

He said both par­ties will soon fi­nalise the agree­ment to jointly op­er­ate the site while a tech­ni­cal team will con­duct a road show on June 18 to ed­u­cate Fas­mec’s 300 mem­bers on the ben­e­fits of the new plat­form and how to use it.

“Our mem­bers will soon be hav­ing a plat­form to dis­play and sell their prod­ucts that will make it eas­ier and cheaper to reach in­ter­na­tional cus­tomers.

“The do­main will func­tion like Alibaba in China, ex­cept with Cam­bo­dian prod­ucts and ven­dors,” he said, with­out pro­vid­ing de­tails on how to reg­is­ter them for dis­play on the web­site.

Taing Por said Sram & Mram has reached sim­i­lar agree­ments with SME as­so­ci­a­tions in other Asean coun­tries.

The chair­man and founder of Sram & Mram Re­sources Lim­ited, Sailesh Lachu Hi­ranan­dani, said in the re­lease that the shop­ping web­site will help SME own­ers to in­tro­duce their prod­ucts to a wider con­sumer base.

“The ob­jec­tive of the pro­ject is to place the SMEs un­der one roof by pro­vid­ing them the av­enue to con­duct busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties with­out wor­ry­ing about the fun­da­men­tals of find­ing a buyer or seller,” he said.
