Poor now seems are no longer poor at all. From today onwards, one of the poorest countries in the world “Cambodia” gives opportunity to Cambodians to buy a Rolls-Royce in their very own nation, as Rolls-Royce inaugurated its first showroom in Phnom Penh.
Paul Harris, the regional director for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Asia Pacific, and Cham Prasidh, Cambodian Minister of Industry and Handicraft, were invited at the event to make the announcement. Appropriately, the Rolls-Royce sales bay in the Cambodia will help the nation to develop its economy.
Harris said the firm’s expansion to Cambodia was possible thanks to the country’s rapid economic growth in the last decade and off the rising demand for luxury vehicles.
“We are very happy to see our brand blossom in yet another Southeast Asian market. We have seen positive signs in this market thanks to a burgeoning economy and therefore a growing base of highly successful, entrepreneurial customers,” said Paul Harris at the launching ceremony.
Continuing the moment of truth further, the Industry minister said, the numbers of middle class families are increasing. “I’m very confident that Rolls-Royce cars will have room to grow in Cambodia because the country has many Oknhsa (tycoons), so they have money to buy them.”
The HGB Group Co. is the only sole company to have acquired dealership rights for selling the luxury British motorcars in the nation. According to the minister, about 10 Rolls-Royce cars were registered in the country, noting that a newer mode was about $950,000.
The tax structure is very accumulating in Cambodia, which the sources said, market price hits upto 2-3 times more than the actual price of the car.
Hopefully, it would be interesting to see which model sells best over there, either it will be the Wraith or the Phantom, we mean whether the speed would win over the ultimate luxury, it will be worth watching for.
