About this event

Investing in the IBeeC Strategy: How to Create a Sizeable Impact and Support One of the Most Comprehensive Inclusive Business Strategies in SE Asia

Cambodia is a country of sharp contrasts but also offers unique opportunities. The country is a model case in ASEAN to promote Inclusive Business (IB). The government just finalized a very comprehensive and innovative strategy to promote IB. The strategy for a better enabling environment for Inclusive Business in Cambodia (the IBeeC strategy) has a unique support and unprecedented level of engagement from the public and the private sectors.

Being instrumental in providing sustainable solutions and having a real impact with the poor, inclusive businesses in Cambodia face challenges in finding financing. The action plan for the IBeeC Strategy was created to tackle these challenges.

This event is supported by the Inclusive Business Action Network (iBAN). iBAN is jointly co-funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the European Union. It is implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
