The British Embassy Phnom Penh maintains and develops relations between the UK and Cambodia.

They promote UK interests through a strong, effective relationship with Cambodia. They work in a number of areas including STEM education, human rights and good governance, climate change, and child protection.

They provide support and advice to the growing number of UK companies doing businesses in Cambodia, and provide consular assistance to British nationals, over 135,000 of whom visit Cambodia each year.

They also provide significant financial support to the Extraordinary Chambers of the Courts of Cambodia (Khmer Rouge Tribunal) to bring to justice those responsible for the atrocities committed during the Khmer Rouge era.
