Department of International Trade and Logistics

As a Major; International Trade and Logistics:

  • International Trade is the exchange of capital, goods and services across international borders.
  • Countries specialise in exporting those products and services which they can produce most efficiently and import those where they are less efficient.
  • The International Trade gains an overwhelming importance as globalization affects the whole world: Today about a third of all the goods and services produced are traded internationally.
  • International Trade is a powerful driver for growth and rising living standards, especially in the developing countries.
  • Economic efficiency requires effective International Trade. Effective International Trade requires well-educated & qualified man power (human capital).
  • The program also focuses on logistics. The process of logistics involves not only internal operations but also the role of the middlemen and supporting companies in International Trade.
  • The goal of logistics is to deliver the right product, at the right time, to the right place, in the right quantity, and for the right cost, in an excellent and flawless condition. This requires specialised knowledge of logistic management, as well as a staff resource of logistic managers, who are highly competent and skilled.
  • As a result, Cambodia needs qualified generations who can keep up with changes and developments in International Trade and Logistics, who can merge their knowledge of world trade with Cambodia’s benefit.
