Congratulations on the Phnom Penh Post. This is the first time in my life in my beloved
country to see an English version newspaper. I am really excited about this publication.
As you know, there was no such thing before in my homeland and you give birth to
a new era of freedom of the press. It is of great importance to me and to my fellow
Cambodians, as His Excellency Yasushi Akashi stated: "The launching of a new
newspaper will broaden freedom of expression and enrich the diversity of views, thus
I will save my income to afford the publication and my wife will love your newspaper
also, since she understands the language. I wish you great success.
