the provinces selling the Canon range of products.

sell items such as: Photocopiers, Fax machines, Electronic typewriters,

computers, calculators and cameras, subsequently we will have separate shops

selling specific items to cater better to consumer needs.

"Since the business began three years ago it has been expanding rapidly,

especially in the last few months."

"This month RGC has invested

$100,000 to open a new Canon photocopier shop in Battambang to meet clients'

needs, especially NGOs based in the province."

"Another office is going

to split from the head office in Phnom Penh and will open very soon aimed at

showing customers the difference between real and fake products.

"My

shops sell only real, high quality, products at a reasonable price, just a

little bit higher than the fake ones", said Kith,

"With high quality and

high professionalism, Canon shops should attract many customers from foreign

companies and agencies, embassies, NGOs and government."

RGC consists of

many companies distributing a range of products: Royal Cambodia Bank, Royal

Company Ltd, Royal Construction, Royal Brick Manufacturer, Royal Studio Video

Production...

work in various areas and many local artisans have been trained by overseas

specialists."

RGC is also planning to set up a computer show room in

Phnom Penh and later a computer training school for eager learners Kith

said.

"The main reason for opening a computer school is to help

Cambodians out of illiteracy, not so much to make money, but rather because I

love Cambodia and Cambodians."
