The Indonesian Embassy in Phnom Penh hosted the Indonesia Health Fest (IHF) in Sihanoukville on Friday and Saturday June, 2024 in order to foster collaboration and cooperation between the health sectors of Indonesia and Cambodia to the benefit of both countries.


The opening ceremony of IHF 2024 took place on Friday at the Prince Times Hotel and featured opening remarks from Deputy Governor of Preah Sihanouk Mang Sineth, Undersecretary of State for the Ministry of Health Preas Muslim and Santo Darmosumarto, Indonesia’s Ambassador to Cambodia. Around 800 people were in attendance at the event.


IHF 2024 showcased a comprehensive exhibition sponsored by the Indonesian and Cambodian health industries. Attendees benefitted from free basic medical health checks and participated in a health forum that included presentations from health practitioners, experts and policymakers from both countries discussing crucial health-related issues.




The Indonesian Embassy and event sponsors also organised door prizes for the attendees. Prizes included electric motorbikes, bicycles and smartwatches, adding an element of excitement to the event.


In 2023, Indonesian exports of health products to Cambodia amounted to $29.4 million while bilateral trade overall between the two nations reached $1.1 billion. Indonesia is keen to push for more interactions between the stakeholders in the health sectors of the two countries.
