The members of the Cambodian SEA Games Organising Committee (CAMSOC) gathered once again to discuss the plans and preparation for the upcoming 2023 Southeast Asian Games.
The presentations and discussions yesterday at the National Olympic Committee (NOCC) headquarters in Phnom Penh centred on two of the fourteen commissions involved in the planning for the SEA Games, according to Vath Chamroeun, secretary-general of the NOCC.
The meeting was presided by Tourism Minister Thong Khon, who is also the president of NOCC and permanent vice president of CAMSOC.
In an interview after the meeting, Chamroeun identified these two special commissions as the Media and Promotion Commission and Culture, Environment and Sports Education Commission.
The chairmen of the two commissions, including Chea Chanborith, who is at the helm of the Culture, Environment and Sports Education Commission, took turns presenting their plans and answering the questions of other members of CAMSOC.
Chamroeun said the two commissions will play a very important role in the upcoming regional sports competition, which will be held in Cambodia for the first time.
He said the Media and Promotion Commission will have to work together with the Marketing Commission to promote the SEA Games.
The Culture, Environment and Sports Education Commission, for its part, will be in-charge of promoting and implementing clean and green, drug-free and no-traffic campaigns, among other programmes.
“They will make sure everything is clean by 2023,” Chamroeun stressed. “They are very important for the image of the SEA Games.”
Several experts from the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts were also there to support the presentations.
Chamroeun said their preparations will continue despite the dangers presented by the coronavirus pandemic. He said they will continue to hold weekly meetings while practicing social distancing and other measures intended to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.
Last week, CAMSOC had a meeting at the same venue to discuss issues related to the construction of various SEA Games-related infrastructure, including roads and Morodok Techo National Sports Complex.
