The Cambodia Association of Travel Agents has agreed to hold elections at the end of the month after a leadership dispute rocked the association late last year.
CATA and the Ministry of Tourism arranged the elections for the top leadership positions that oversee Cambodia’s second largest industry, according to current CATA president Ang Kim Eang.
An exact date was not given.
Several CATA board members accused Ang Kim Eang of misusing association funds and called for his resignation in December, the Post reported.
Ang Kim Eang claimed the board members were trying to usurp control of CATA and did not represent the association’s more than 100 total members.
He said yesterday that he would most likely not run for president again.
“I want to give a chance to new people who can show their capacity when Cambodia chairs ASEAN,” he said.
“As for me, I’m 90 per cent sure I will not stand for reelection.”
Cambodia assumed chairmanship of ASEAN this year.
