The section for development co-operation in Phnom Penh was in August 2010 upgraded to an Embassy. Anne Höglund has been appointed as new Ambassador. She will present her credentials to Cambodia’s King Sihamoni on 12 November.
The Swedish government decided in April this year to open Embassies in a number of countries where Sweden has a substantial development co-operation.
The Embassy’s overall mission is to strengthen the Swedish presence in Cambodia and to deepen and broaden the relations between our two countries. The Embassy will focus on development co-operation and political and trade related issues, including human rights.
