We are here to celebrate the extraordinary success of Cambodia Technovation. Over the past four years, Cambodia Technovation has helped assemble 50 teams of around 200 girls to compete in the program using the funding and support from USAID through its Development Innovation project.

That success has come through an open investment framework, modern special economic zones, improved tax administration, and other business-friendly reforms.

Remarks by Ambassador William A. Heidt at the CE SAIN Scholarship and Research Grant Ceremony
October 18, 2017

It’s very clear that Cambodia will remain a country that depends on agriculture for economic growth and poverty alleviation for the foreseeable future. And despite a great deal of progress in Cambodian agriculture, there is still a lot of work to be done and a lot of room for innovation.

Cambodia should feel proud that it has produced enough rice for its people for over 20 years now. That is a very important milestone. But Cambodia still imports a majority – 70 percent – of its fruits and vegetables, so one of the next key challenges is developing the horticulture sector as part of overall agricultural diversification.
