Mr Kang will work closely with Cambodian representatives to strengthen the relationship between Australia and Cambodia.
Mr Kang holds a BA(Hons) (1995) and LLB(Hons) (1998) from the University of Sydney. He recently commenced his role as ambassador, replacing Ms Angela Corcoran.
Cambodia is an important regional partner to Australia and we cooperate in multinational fora, including in efforts to address challenges such as people smuggling, terrorism and transnational crime. Cooperation on education, through the Australia Awards and the New Colombo Plan, has provided opportunities to thousands of students from Australia and Cambodia.
Mr Kang is a senior career officer with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and was most recently Assistant Secretary of the Pacific Infrastructure Branch. He has previously served overseas as Ambassador to United Arab Emirates and High Commissioner to Vanuatu.
