Khmer Resources Announces Inauguration of Hong Kong Office
Hong Kong, Jan 17, 2013 (ACN Newswire via COMTEX) --
Khmer Resources Investment Holding Group Co. Limited ("Khmer Resources"), an energy development company headquartered in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, is pleased to announce today the inauguration of its Hong Kong office and the strategic partnership among Khmer Resources, Khmer International Media Group Corporation ("Khmer Media"), and i-marker Global Corporation ("i-marker ").
Khmer Resources is the "window" company of Khmer Resources Investment Holding Group Co., Ltd ("Khmer Holding"), which owns rich mineral resources in Cambodia. The World Bank and International Monetary Fund expect Cambodia's GDP to expand around 7% per year, supported by the strong growth potential in agriculture, mining, processing and tourism industries. Furthermore, The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries are now the largest market for foreign investments by China enterprises, with a total investment of approximately USD12.5 billion in the past three years. It is believed that the establishment of Khmer Resources' office in Hong Kong should expand the channels for overseas investments in Cambodia and help to capitalize the country's rich natural resources.
In December 2012, a Strategic Exclusive Partnership Agreement was signed among Khmer Resources, Khmer Media, and i-marker, with an effective period of ten years. According to the agreement, Khmer Media is to cooperate with related Institutions of the Cambodia Government to implement integration of the i-marker platform to major government procedures of Cambodia, including the immigration process, custom registration and clearance, passport issuance and registration, identity card issuance and so on. Khmer Media is to proactively promote the wider utilisation of i-marker's platform in Cambodia, and extending it to the other nine countries in ASEAN.
His Excellency Oknia Cao Yunde (Rank of Minister), the Vice-President of Assistants & Advisors Team to Samdech Chea Sim - Chairman of the People's Party and President of the Cambodian Senate and Chairman of Khmer Resources commented: "The inauguration of our Hong Kong office connects international investors to a wide range of profitable projects in Cambodia and help foster the social and economic development of the country. We believe our presence in Hong Kong and the partnership with i-marker are the beginning of more mutually fruitful cooperation and development between Cambodia and the Greater China market in the future."
After trading hours today, Hong Kong listed company China Railsmedia Corporation Limited ("China Railsmedia"; HKSE: 745) also announced that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the existing shareholders of i-marker in relation to a proposed acquisition of i-marker.
Mr. Hui Chi Yung, Chairman of China Railsmedia said: "Given the vast potential of mobile commerce platforms especially in high growth emerging markets in Asia, combined with the outstanding quality and capabilities of the i-marker platform, we have full confidence in the future of i-marker. Our plan is to fully seize the business opportunities around the ASEAN region so as to expand i-marker's geographical reach and broaden its revenue base."
