PHNOM PENH, August 6, (Khmer Times) – iMove, a new campaign against corruption for poverty reduction in Cambodia, was launched by the Cooperation Committee for Cambodia (CCC)  Tuesday.
With the support and participation from about 70 civil society organizations, the 514 day campaign begins today and will countdown until the end of 2015. 
Soeung Saroeun, executive director of the CCC, said that the national iMove campaign is part of the regional events of Action/2015 Asia which includes iMove initiatives against injustice, inequity and insecurity. Cambodia is conducting iMove to combat corruption.
“Participation from government and individuals in efforts to eliminate or reduce corruption will assist to ensure the development of the social economy, culture and a sustainable environment,” said Mr. Soeung Saroeun. 
At the inauguration ceremony, Pich Pisey, program director of Transparency International Cambodia, said that iMove is a very important step towards eliminating corruption, which is a major cause of poverty. 
El Sotheary, head of program of the CCC, noted that iMove will involve social activities and public forums to spread the key messages. The goal of iMove is to educate, reduce corruption and get the attention of authorities. 
The campaign kicks off in the provinces of Kampong Chhnang, Kampong Thom, Svay Rieng and Preah Vihear with different activities such as bicycling, dancing or running.
