The American-Cambodian Business Council was officially launched yesterday at the
residence of the American Ambassador Kenneth Quinn.
The council will be a non-political, non-partisan organization serving the interests
of the American business community in Cambodia. The group will organize meetings
on a regular basis and is designed on a model similar to other American chambers
of commerce in the Asian region.
An informal tally produced by the U.S. Embassy lists 91 "U.S. Companies, Agents
& Distributors for U.S. Products in Cambodia". Many of those listed were
represented at the initial launch of the Council. Firms represented range in size
from multinational giants such as UNOCAL, Coca Cola, Ernst and Young, and Pepsi to
smaller companies including law firms, traders, and travel agencies.
