HISTORY
The ADW was founded in 2001 to become a platform for German business activities, for information exchange between its members, local and international businesses seeking to operate in the Kingdom and other organizations based in Cambodia.

Companies interested in conducting business in the Kingdom are invited to contact the ADW to benefit from its internal and external networks. 

The ADW supports the foreign investment oriented policy of the Royal Cambodian Government (RCG) and cooperates with all relevant institutions. 
We offer support to German business delegations visiting Cambodia via our own network as well as via Eurocham Cambodia, of which the ADW is a key founding member.

THE ADW AND EUROCHAM CAMBODIA
In 2011, the ADW has co-initiated the process to create EuroCham Cambodia, and in 2013 voted to become the first national chapter being established within Eurocham Cambodia. The integration into a larger European business network offers an opportunity to our members to access a wide range of traditional business services, to participate in advocacy committees, and to access market information that is continuously compiled and updated.

BOARD
The current ADW board has the following members:

President: Tassilo Brinzer
Vice president: Thomas Hundt
Treasurer: Marco Kalinna

 

ACTIVITIES
The ADW provides a platform for its members to exchange expertise in Cambodia. Our members meet with government representatives in exclusive settings, meet international business leaders as well as German investors and introduce visiting German business delegations and interested investors to the German, local and international business community.

Business-related activities such as advocacy, active outreach to European investors and professional services to companies have been handed over to Eurocham Cambodia while the ADW remains a primary resource for German business networking opportunities. The ADW does not see itself as a traditional business chamber, but as an exclusive hub for informal but relevant exchange with the local business community and the RCG.

The ADW is the host of the annual Oktoberfest in Cambodia (www.oktoberfest-cambodia.com), a widely anticipated German event attracting thousands from within the international business community in Cambodia. 

The ADW also supports selected initiatives by the Royal Cambodian Government, in particular in the education & vocational training sector, and cooperates with other business chambers such as the IBC (International Business Chamber) in further developing adequate support structures in this area.
