CIMB announced it will host the second CIMB ASEAN conference at The Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur hotel on June 13 and 14, according to a press release on Sunday.

“This conference is important for Cambodia because its imminent integration into the ASEAN economic community in 2015 will provide many business opportunities for Cambodians and Cambodian businesses in other members of the community such as Thailand, Vietnam and so on,” said Nazir Razak, Group Chief Executive of CIMB Group.
