Position: National Intern for ASEAN-SME (GIZ Cambodia)__Deadline:31-May

GIZ is a federally owned enterprise and is supporting the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development.

The Strengthening Regional Structures for Small and Medium Enterprises Promotion in ASEAN “ASEAN-SME”, implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), is seeking a Full Time National Intern for 6 months (01st July 2024 – 31st December 2024). The work schedule is five (5) days in a week for eight (8) hours a day, from 08:00 in the morning to 05:00 in the afternoon. This position is based in Phnom Penh.

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are important drivers for the economies of the ASEAN Member States, and their active role is emphasized in the Blueprint for the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) 2025. However, in the implementation, challenges were found with respect to a lack of awareness and limited information among SMEs on how to access markets and utilize opportunities for expansion both within and outside of the region. Limited information about international requirements and standards for commercial products results in difficulties in linking up with value chains in regional and international trade. This results in delayed expansion and economic growth. For this reason, efforts must be made to increase access to relevant information and networks and improve capacity to address all these aforementioned challenges.

The objective of the ASEAN-SME project is “The effectiveness of promotion structures for cross-border business activities of small and medium-sized enterprises in ASEAN is improved.” In close cooperation with the ASEAN Coordinating Committee on Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (ACCMSME), the project will support the implementation of the SAPSMED 2025 with a dual focus on improving the market access and internationalisation of SMEs, as well as enhancing the policy and regulatory environment. The regional project has defined the following output: (1) The regional cooperation model ASEAN Access is strengthened; (2) SMEs in ASEAN are prepared for internationalisation through the provision of national-level information, advice, and contact services; (3) The regional knowledge transfer/exchange of experience on future-oriented SME-relevant policy issues is strengthened.

In order to put the said objective and output into realization, the project and the implementing partner in Cambodia (Ministry of Industry, Science, Technology and Innovation, MISTI) have established the SME Taskforce to develop the National SME information website, KhmerSME (www.khmersme.gov.kh), which will specifically provide various information and other support for progress and improvement in the quality of SMEs to participate in the country and regional trade arena. For ASEAN, ASEAN Access (www.aseanaccess.com), with the tagline “Your Business Information Gateway to ASEAN and Beyond”, is an online portal serving as the first port of call for ASEAN SMEs and other businesses for information on trade and market access in ASEAN. ASEAN Access provides  businesses  interested  in  the  ASEAN  region  with  trade  and  market-related
information, and access to support services necessary to penetrate new markets.
