New Governor in Preah Vihear

General Preap Thann became the official governor of Preah Vihear on April 5. In a

ceremony officiated by Secretary of State for Interior Than Sina, the governor's

seal was passed from out-going Governor Khoy Khon Hou to Thann in the provincial

capital T'beng Meanchey.

In his acceptance speech Thann, a two-star general, said one of his pressing concerns

was to develop the province's infrastructure so that the province would be better

connected to the rest of Cambodia. Both the out-going and in-coming governors are

members of the CPP.

After the ceremony, Thann took officials and guests to Preah Vihear temple by helicopter

where security officials said around 3,000 tourists were visiting the site daily

from Thailand, which was bringing in 90,000 baht in visitors fees.
