Envoy enlists Korean tech firm’s help for EV assembly
Hin Pisei | The Phnom Penh Post | 08 June 2021
Cambodia asked Seoul-listed LS Electric Co Ltd to incorporate its latest technology into Onion Mobility Co Ltd’s upcoming Onion T1 electric auto-rickshaw, to be assembled domestically and put on sale within the year.
Cambodian ambassador to South Korea Long Dimanche made the appeal during a visit to LS Electric’s headquarters and manufacturing facility in central South Korea’s Cheongju city late last month.
With its international positioning as a high-tech company, LS Electric’s direct investment in Cambodia or any partnership with firms in the Kingdom would be “very positive” for the country, Dimanche told The Post on June 7.
