A new NGO, the Cambodian Agency for National Development, has been set up by
National Assembly members to help the poor.
Its president, MP Ahmad
Yahya, said the NGO aimed to promote Cambodian economic, education and social
development through programs such as job creation and vocational skills
"There are many NGOs helping Cambodian people, but this is
still inadequate," he said. "We Cambodians should show that we are willing to
help our people first." The NGO included representatives from the National
Assembly and Cambodian businesses. It hoped to reduce the gap between the pace
of economic development in Cambodia's cities and the provinces.
