PM backs Koh Pich

Canadia Bank’s owners received a boost for their riverside investment Tuesday when Prime Minister Hun Sen recommended universities hold their degree ceremonies at Diamond Hall on Phnom Penh’s Koh Pich (Diamond Island). Speaking at a degree ceremony at the conference hall of the National Institute of Education, the usual venue for such events, the prime minister said a shift in location would help ease capacity concerns. “Now we have a big location for over 5,000 people on Koh Pich” said Hun Sen, adding that students should contact Canadia to arrange ceremonies in the future. Koh Pich is being redeveloped as part of a US$200m investment by Overseas Cambodia Investment Corp owned by the President of Canadia Bank, Phung Kheav Se.
