Japan Inc. is launching a plan intended to make it a bigger development player in Southeast Asia, a region increasingly awash in Chinese money.
Cambodia is to be the first landing spot for the initiative, with about 60 Japanese trading companies, banks, general contractors and other parties already aboard. Through bilateral talks, Tokyo intends to advance urban development with focuses on the environment and so-called smart city infrastructure.
