About ICT Federation

In April of 2016, the ICT Federation of Cambodia (ICTF) was relaunched with a new Board of Directors, represented by industry leaders, and a new vision was set forth: "Empowering Cambodia's Digital Economy." For the first time, Cambodia's top ICT companies have united with a common cause: empowering small to large ICT related businesses to expand Cambodia's digital economy into a multi-billion dollar industry.

The current board members of ICTF is representing six major ICT sectors: Software Development, Telecom, ISP, Hardware, New Media and Services & Solutions. We plan to add more board members from other sectors soon.

ICTF is independently managed by the private sector but it is strongly endorsed by the Ministry of Post and Telecom (MPTC) as the only recognized ICT association in Cambodia. There are various opportunities for ICTF and MPTC to collaborate on strategic ICT initiatives and events.
