Cambodia

Overview

Singapore and Cambodia enjoy warm bilateral relations. Cambodia was one of the first countries to recognise Singapore‘s independence in 1965. We cooperate closely on the bilateral, regional and multilateral levels. Over the last decade, our ties and economic relations have grown steadily, sustained by a regular momentum of high level visits. We also work closely on technical cooperation through the Singapore Cooperation Programme (SCP). Singapore established the Cambodia-Singapore Training Centre in Phnom Penh in 2002 under the Initiative for ASEAN Integration to train Cambodian officials. To boost economic integration and the adoption of technology in the region, the Cambodia-Singapore Training Centre was upgraded to a Singapore Cooperation Centre in 2018.
