We have been collaborating with Confluences throughout multiple assignments in Cambodia, having the chance to access their insightful knowledge of the Cambodian context as well as their reliable local network. With their professional and entrepreneurial team, they supported us in understanding and connecting with local businesses, also successfully undertaking highly critical on-field activities such as in-depth interviews and focus groups involving local business owners. If you want to do business in Cambodia or if you need market access services, Confluences is your ideal partner. No matter how tough the conditions, they always manage to come through and deliver excellent results!
Establishing a business in a country requires a lot of information, a good analysis of the market, building a competent and loyal team, and more... in short, it is a real adventure with all its risks. It is precisely this risk, which we try to anticipate and limit, that falls within Confluences field of expertise. Their knowledge of the market, their networks, an adapted strategy, all of this help make Confluences a key player for a successful establishment in Cambodia. This was the choice of Asia Data Destruction, the Asian leader in data destruction.

Confluences provided us with several customised sectoral market studies. Thanks to these studies, we were able to clearly understand the Cambodian market and identify the main players. The information provided is precise, relevant and complete. It would have been impossible to carry out this work without the big business network that Soreasmey and his team have. Confluences' commercial approach is dynamic, creative and proactive. For any future commercial mission in Cambodia, we will count on a close collaboration with the Confluences team.

I’ve known Confluences through Soreasmey during a networking program, Capital Market Academy GMS, organised by the Stock Exchange of Thailand since 2018. Soreasmey is truly resourceful when it comes to Cambodia given his expertise in business entry to the country and his extensive network. He and his team are usually my first call when I need intel or have questions on businesses in Cambodia.

We reached out to Confluences as part of a market entry project. Their initial market study was packed with insights and data that allowed us to make an informed decision, and they followed up with custom solutions to help us on our next steps. Their flexibility and can-do attitude, combined with an excellent knowledge of the local market, made them the perfect Cambodian Market Access partner. 10/10 would recommend.

Confluences is a true mover in Cambodia. Having worked with Soreasmey and his team on various occasions and projects, I always met Soreasmey as a calm and thoughtful mediator who understands the requirements for successful interaction between partners. One of the first company's in the Kingdom to bring a series of start-ups to the market, Soreasmey and his team have a fantastic network and can count on the support of many from within the local French and international business communities. Confluences is your perfect entry point into the growing Cambodian market.
Confluences is the natural outcome of what Smey (Soreasmey) and his teams are bringing to the country: great projects and opportunities and a great platform for young professionals to grow. One of the most trustworthy go-to experts, team and company for FDI in Cambodia and the Mekong region. I recommend Smey and Confluences like a family member.

For our new Ucare Pharmacy at Chip Mong Sen Sok Mall, we wanted the best quality PVC floor available in Cambodia. From the store’s aspect, for sure, but also for its sustainability, as our previous choice of floor used to suffer a lot with in-store traffic. We were very satisfied with the quality of the Gerflor PVC floor in our first project at Ucare Pharmacy Norodom, that’s why we selected the same floor for this new project. During the fit-out period, we could fully count on the Confluences team’s reactivity, and the 110 square meters were installed in less than 3 days. With a need to set up standard processes as much as possible, Ucare Pharmacy would be happy to establish a long-term partnership with Gerflor and Confluences.
I have been working on the renovation of our pediatric ward at Royal Phnom Penh Hospital with Confluences Trading. It was not an easy project but I can confirm that their team was very professional and dedicated to the final result. I would definitely recommend them and the Gerflor lines of products for any healthcare project.

When one wants to invest in an emerging market and the rules are uncertain, the best thing that can happen is that you find people you can trust, who are competent, and who have established relationships with key stakeholders to open doors or gather information you need to enter the market. Soreasmey and his team are these rare people. Sometimes that's what you need to get going, people who listen, offer guidance and know the place so it becomes yours too.
Gerflor professional flooring ranges have only been available in Cambodia recently but thanks to Confluences Trading team dynamism and its technical involvements, upcoming Gerflor’s project are going quickly. Confluences has solid references and expertise, we are very optimistic for our future development in Cambodia and Asia.

Lim and Partner has more than 10 years of experience in headhunting, assessment, and coaching, but it would have been pointless to try to set up in Cambodia by adapting its technical skills to a culture and market that we knew little about. This is where the partnership with Confluences made sense and the alliance between motivated and very competent consultants and our team allows us today to respond very efficiently to the needs of our clients, even the most demanding!
Lim and Partners
Our ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA office in Bangkok is also covering the Cambodian market. Since we do not avail of an employee on the ground in Cambodia it is difficult for us to do market research and organise business meetings. We have therefore been cooperating with Confluences for some time already, particularly in the preparation and implementation of Austrian Trade delegations where Confluences proved to be a knowledgeable and reliable partner.
Head of Advantage Austria Bangkok
Our adventure started with the aim to expand our company in the Asian market supported by Confluences. A feasibility study followed and our ASEAN team is still incubated at Confluences. We found them to be trustworthy partners, a consistency in processes, and we hope Confluences will stay by our side for upcoming projects.

Having support from Confluences was a key factor in the success of setting up our engineering program in Cambodia. They gave us successful help in communication, in relation to many companies, and did a market study. The Confluences team is competent and responsive. Soreasmey is not just a simple business partner, he is a trusted partner with strong professional skills.
Consistency, communication and competence. Confluences team has helped our business, including myself personally. Trust and credibility: genuine, always truthful and always keeping me reliably informed.
Our startup was awarded an Access market tour in Cambodia through the MIST program. That’s how we met the Confluences team. For five days they helped us secure key meetings, both with institutions, but also low-profile tour operators. They perfectly understood our needs, and matched us with local actors, which helped us start our operations in Cambodia in the best possible way.

We worked with Confluences Trading to equip our new art center "Ikigai Art Center" with professional flooring that can be adapted to all types of artistic practices. The Trading team installed 80 square meters of Gerflor flooring, a very resistant and easy to maintain floor. We are delighted with this service, the team is very professional and responsive to our needs.
We called upon Confluences Trading for the renovation of our squash court. We, as well as our customers, are very satisfied with the 120 square meters of Gerflor flooring installed. The Confluences teams were able to advise us and provide us with the best flooring solution, specially designed for indoor sports. From the first contact to the installation and the study of the project, the Confluences Trading team was very professional and reactive.

The team greatly helped my personal integration into the country through administrative paperwork, also getting all business licenses settled in order to have a fast operational environment.They also provided business opportunities by bringing synergies between different French or French-speaking companies to work together in Cambodia; for anyone willing to explore the Cambodian market, I strongly recommend contacting them.
