Kith Meng, Hun Sen’s crony, elected to become president of the Cambodian chamber of commerce
The Rasmei Kampuchea reported that Oknha Kith Meng, president of the Phnom Penh chamber of commerce, was elected to become the president of the Cambodian chamber of commerce because he was the only candidate in the election which was held on 03 October 2007. According to Mao Thora, secretary of state of the ministry of commerce, among the 12 presidents of the chambers of commerce in various province and municipalities, Kith Meng was the only volunteer to present his candidacy to this position. The 12 chamber of commerce presidents then proceeded to elect the president of the Cambodian chamber of commerce, and Kith Meng received all 12 votes, and he will become its president from now on. Kith Meng said that he was moved to fulfill his new position, but he said that this position is not that easy because there are a lot of tasks to accomplish, such as fulfilling the rice exportation policy of the government. Nevertheless, he said that he will work hard to successfully fulfill his new task of exporting Cambodian rice.
