Government gift NOCC plot to build new offices

The National Olympic Committee of Cambodia has received 10,000 square metres of land in Phnom Penh from the Royal Government to build offices, which will also house its Paralympics and Special Olympics divisions, according to NOCC President and Tourism Minister Thong Khon. The National Paralympics Committee of Cambodia has been given an honourable award from King Norodom Sihamony, issued by the Royal decree No.0511/456 on May 23 to NPCC General Secretary Yi Veasna, and has received a US$2,000 donation from Prime Minister Hun Sen. Yi Veasna claimed that since 1997, the NPCC has sent teams to compete in international events such as the Asian Games, SEA Games and other World tournaments, achieving a total of 15 gold medals, 30 silvers and 18 bronzes. TRANSLATED BY PANN RETHEA
