Rolls-Royce to open showroom in Cambodia
(06-09 19:10)

Fabled luxury car maker Rolls-Royce will soon be marketing its cars in one of the world's poorest countries.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has joined with a Cambodian business partner to open a showroom in the Cambodian capital next month.

Rolls-Royce Asia-Pacific regional manager Paul Harris said his company signed a deal with HGB Group Co Ltd because it believed demand would grow along with Cambodia's economy.

Cambodia's average per capita annual income is about US$2,600 (HK$20,280) a bit less than 1 percent of the cost of the cheapest Rolls-Royce. However, a small but wealthy elite lives in the capital of the mostly rural nation.--AP
