Walkie-Talkie Deal Signed

Motorola, the world's leading manufacturer of wireless communications equipment,

recently appointed Royal Cambodia Co., Ltd. as its Cambodia-based distributor of

wireless, two-way radio equipment.

As a result of an agreement signed on May 13, Royal Cambodia will now develop a demonstration,

sales and service facility for "walkie-talkie" radios which will have a

range of between 35-40 kilometers once a repeater station is installed in Phnom Penh.

"Due to the well-known name of Motorola, Royal Cambodia is pleased to be able

to become the distributor of these excellent products in Cambodia," said Chhy

Kaing, a director of the Royal Cambodia Group.

"Our equipment provides instant communications in support of a wide variety

of customers," said John Conrad, Motorola's Land Mobile Products Division manager,

who was in Phnom Penh for the signing ceremony. Conrad said that potential customers

include public service organizations, commercial enterprises, hotels and tourism

agencies among others.

With a price range of between U.S. $300 to $600, depending on equipment options,

Motorola feels that there is a potential market in Phnom Penh for walkie-talkies,

especially when compared to the more expensive mobile phones currently available.

"Walkie-talkies are good for efficiently managing distribution systems or for

keeping in touch with your employees," said Conrad.

Motorola equipment will also be capable, for an extra service fee, of accessing the

local Phnom Penh telephone system.

Users of walkie-talkies are required to obtain a license from the Department of Posts

and Telecommunications. Royal Cambodia is prepared to assist equipment purchasers

with application processing.

Royal Cambodia is headquartered at 246 Achar Mean Blvd.
