“The Hinrich Global Trade Leader Scholarship will introduce me to global trade practitioners and a wider network of global trade gurus.”
Narita has been working in the banking sector for more than 15 years and currently works for J Trust Royal Bank as Head of Corporate Banking. J Trust Royal Bank is a joint venture between J Trust, a Japanese diversified financial holding company, and The Royal Group, one of Cambodia’s largest conglomerates. At the J Trust Royal Bank, Narita has bottom-line and credit quality responsibilities, leading a team providing banking services and credit facilities to over 1,200 corporate clients.
Prior to this role, she worked for more than ten years for ANZ Royal Bank Cambodia where her most recent role was Head of Local Corporates.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration from the National Institute of Management of Cambodia, and also received her MBA in Finance from Charles Sturt University, Cambodia campus.
Being a Cambodian citizen, I would like to participate in the journey of my country’s development and sustainable growth.
With this aspiration, I chose to work with the banking sector to have opportunities to deal directly with business clients. I’m able to support their business and supply chains, and offer innovative, efficient solutions that add value to their businesses.
If local companies are able to grow their businesses, more jobs will be created for people in the country. The government will also generate tax revenue to further develop the country’s infrastructure, as well as invest in human capital development. This is an indirect involvement by which I could support the sustainable economic growth of my country.
Being the business partner of corporate clients, I provide them with value-added services. This requires me to know their business and industry so that I can support them through innovative solutions and useful information in the local and global context. Insights into trade agreements and regulations, and knowledge related to trade and best practices in the market are some of the things I expected to learn from the Master of Global Trade.
I also recognize the benefits of connecting with the extensive network of the Hinrich Foundation. As a part of the Foundation’s community, I would be able to interact with fellow alumni from different institutions and jurisdictions. Aside from learning through the Foundation’s platform, we can share ideas, best practices and successful experiences that may be replicated and applied in other regions.
