The // President message

For the past five to ten years, Cambodia has undergone drastic changes. From high-rise buildings to shopping complexes, Phnom Penh is slowly but surely morphing into an updated and international city. Nowhere is this more evident than the streets, where a growing number of cars and SUVs are edging out other forms of transport.

Such a rapid growth comes along with new challenges and issues for both the industry’s key players and government authorities (consumers’ protection & safety, importation of unsafe vehicle, grey market, etc.).

The Cambodia Automotive Industry Federation (CAIF) seeks to enhance and protect the goals of the automotive industry and assist in the improvement of road safety, consumer protection, vehicle safety and driver awareness.

What is CAIF?

The Cambodian Automotive Industry Federation is representing all authorized automotive dealers, including cars, busses, vans and trucks.

Its objectives are:

  • To promote the automotive industry
  • To serve as a single, united voice on issues with the government
  • To participate as the private sector representative in the Automotive ASEAN Working Group
  • To increase employment and vocational training in Cambodia
  • To develop road safety and awareness
  • To strengthen consumer protection, educating the public on the values and benefits of buying from an authorized dealer

the industry

With an average annual growth of 8%,

in automobile imports to the Kingdom, sustaining the trend in previous years. New car imports totaled around 4,000 in 2015, including all types of vehicles.
