Kith Meng, chairman of the Royal Group, was reelected president of the Cambodia Chamber of Commerce yesterday in a landslide vote at its Phnom Penh office. The tycoon, whose interests span television, banking, telecoms and property, was also reelected president of the Phnom Penh Chamber of Commerce.
During the one-day election, Mr. Meng received 33 of 34 votes, and another 14 votes from presidents of 14 provincial chambers of commerce.
Phnom Penh governor Pa Socheatevong said the chamber has for years been the government’s top development partner. The government prioritizes the private sector because of its ability to work with the government to build infrastructure and the economy, he added.
“I welcome the move and am confident that the Chamber of Commerce will actively work with the government,” Mr. Socheatevong said.
