I am happy to be at the inauguration of Coca Cola Cambodia’s very first EKO-Center. Just five kilometers from here, stands Coca Cola Cambodia’s newly built bottling plant in the Phnom Penh Special Economic Zone. This bottling plant shows the success of the Government’s hard work over many years to attract foreign investment. That success has come through an open investment framework, modern special economic zones, improved tax administration, and other business-friendly reforms.

I am pleased to join everyone here today at the formal launch of the Pay Tax Online service, an online electronic payment, or e-payment, facility for internal revenue taxes. This e-payment platform is the product of a strong partnership between the Bureau of Internal Revenue and the Development Bank of the Philippines, with support from USAID. The U.S. government, through USAID, is delighted to support the Philippine government’s growth-enhancing tax administration and governance reforms as part of our shared goal of broad-based and inclusive growth for Filipinos.

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.

The United States government cares deeply about countering trafficking in persons because it affects not just individuals and their families, but also communities and entire countries, regardless of their location or level of economic development. We know from experience around the world that strong coordination among government, civil society, and the private sector is critical to stop human trafficking. The Royal Government of Cambodia shares our concern and the National Committee for Counter Trafficking has provided the leadership and coordination needed to make real progress against human trafficking.

The launch of the DCA, the second one here at the Mission, reaffirms the continued commitment of the U.S. Government to support the development of agriculture, economic growth, and food security in Cambodia. Our new partnership will enhance the access to finance for rural farm businesses and micro, small and medium enterprises in the agriculture sector throughout Pursat, Battambang, Siem Reap and Kampong Thom provinces.

I’m very honored and excited to take part in launching not one, but four USAID activities in cooperation with the Government of Ethiopia’s Health Sector Transformation Plan. These new awards will improve primary health care services in both agrarian and pastoral regions and will expand access to safe water and sanitation.

The Plan is fundamental to ensuring Cambodia is ready to access and effectively use climate financing. The Framework and Plan will help Cambodia address climate risks in critical sectors like agriculture, health, and water. They provide a much-needed road map for targeting resources towards the most important adaptation priorities in those sectors. The process of creating the Framework and Plan has strengthened the capacity of key institutions in Cambodia to address these issues.

On behalf of the U.S. Embassy and USAID Cambodia, I am pleased to be here to launch this Program Planning Workshop for the USAID WASH-FIN activity in Cambodia. WASH-FIN – or Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Finance – is a five-year global activity funded by USAID and implemented by Tetra Tech. In Cambodia, WASH-FIN will assist water and sanitation providers to access money to close the financing gaps in expanding piped water supply. We will work closely with WASH-FIN’s in-country team and core collaborators, including the Cambodian Water Supply Association, or CWA, to guide them towards the best private water providers.
