In Brief: Women's business group reconvenes

The Siem Reap chapter of the International Federation of Business and Professional Women has held its first meeting of 2008 last Friday. The federation is one of the world's most influential networks of business and professional women. It operates in 80 countries, with headquarters in the UK and its regional headquarters in Bangkok. Its new president is Sinketh Arun, director of public relations for Friends Without a Border. During last Friday's meeting, new officers were elected and it was decided that regular meetings would be held from now on every fourth Friday of the month. The group is now on a recruitment drive and will distribute flyers throughout Siem Reap. It is currently comprised of Khmer business women only, but barang counterparts are welcome. Women wishing to join can contact Blue Pumpkin sales representative Kong Sotheavy at 012890539.
