You’ll find nearly all types of companies in Cambodia’s capital city. There are global banks, insurance companies, publishing houses, engineering and construction firms, travel agencies, language schools and more. The capital is also home to numerous non-profit organisations (NGOs) that employ well-compensated country managers and volunteers who are barely receiving anything.
