Trademark registration dossier in Cambodia

When customers enter the world of business and commerce in Cambodia, owning a unique and strong brand becomes a decisive factor to the success and long-term vision of a business. A trademark is an important asset for businesses. It helps businesses differentiate their products or services from those of their competitors. Branding also helps businesses build customer credibility and loyalty. To protect their trademarks, businesses need to register their trademarks at the competent authority.
