ASEAN summit registrations roll in for foreign media outlets

Nearly 1,900 journalists from 41 countries including Cambodia have now registered to cover the five-day high-level ASEAN summit that starts on November 15, Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith said yesterday.

“As of November 12, there are 1,850 journalists registered for covering the events, among those 926 are Cambodian journalists,” he said.

To handle the crush, the ministry has formed a committee of 200 staff and 70 youth volunteers who will aid the visiting journalists.

Three hundred computers will be made available to the media, along with high-speed wireless internet, said Kanharith.
